Joho has sued Sang and three MPs — Oscar Sudi, Kimani Ichung’wah and Didmus Barasa — for defamation.
Early this month, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho sued Sang, MPs Oscar Sudi, Kimani Ichung’wah and Didmus Barasa for allegedly spreading lies that he was a drug trafficker.
Joho had moved to court and sue MPs Oscar Sudi (Kapseret), Kimani Ichung'wa (Kikuyu), Didmus Barasa (Kimilili) and Nandi Governor Stephen Sang for defamation.
Wangamati and Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa had to personally intervene to end the fight between the two groups.
In a suit filed at the High Court in Nairobi, Mr Joho is seeking damages for alleged defamation against the MPs including Didmus Barasa (Kimilili), Kikuyu’s Kimani Ichungwah and Mr Sudi.
- Didmus Barasa claimed to have received emails warning him of specified actions - Waruguru said her office has been raided by goons looking for her - The four MPs said they will not be cowed nor change their political stand Four MPs allied to Deputy President William Ruto have sensationally claimed unknown people are out to eliminate them.
Kiminini MP Didmus Barasa and Laikipia Woman Representative Catherine Waruguru said they have been receiving threats of various forms ranging from SMS to emails.
Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa said a motion to remove the leader of majority must meet the highest threshold set based on evidence and facts.
- Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa insisted that Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho was linked to drug trafficking syndicates - The MP laughed at Joho's move to sue him and four other Jubilee politicians - He said it was not criminal for him to refer to previous parliamentary reports which showed Joho was linked to drug barons - Barasa said his accusations were anchored on a report presented to Parliament by former Internal Security Minister the late George Saitoti Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has insisted Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho is linked to drug trafficking syndicates in the country.
Jubilee leaders who have accused Joho of being a narcotics dealer are Nandi Governor Stephen Sang, MPs Kimani Ichung'wa (Kikuyu), Didmus Barasa (Kimilili), and Oscar Sudi (Kapseret).
