Nandi Governor Stephen Sang’ now wants the details of ownership of Sh 1.3 billion heroin consignment that was destroyed at the Port of Mombasa.
Through his lawyer, the Governor has written to several security bodies, both local and international seeking the said details.
In a letter filed in court, Sang wants the information to enable him file a response to a defamation suite filed by Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho.
He states in his letter that “on or about 29th August 2014, the state under the supervision of the President, various Cabinet Secretaries and the Inspector General of police blew up a luxury yatch referred to as Amin Darya or MV Alnoor that had been laden with 370.8 kilograms of heroine valued at 1.3 billion…..”.
The letter has been addressed to the Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National government Fred Matiang’i, Cabinet Secretary for Defense Rachael Omamo, Inspector General of police Joseph Boinnet, Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and International Central Bureau(Interpol).
The letter is also copied to Interpol-Kenya, Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission, Office of the President of the Republic of Kenya and the Registrar of Kenyan Judiciary.
Sang believes the information sought, if timorously supplied will go a long way in accelerating the fight against drug trafficking through the promotion of a society that is well informed, vigilant and protective of its current and future generations.
