Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji’s office has denounced a letter listing the names of prominent Kenyan individuals who are allegedly wanted by international authorities over drug trafficking allegations.
In a statement, DPP’s office denied receiving the letter that was circulated on social media and purported to have originated from the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).
“The DPP Noordin Haji has not received the following letter circulating on social media purported to have been written by Interpol containing a list of wanted Kenyans for adversely being mentioned in the Akashas’ drug case,” ODPP said in a statement.
The letter listed Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo, and several Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and judicial officers among those wanted by Interpol.
This is the second fake letter to be shared online in relation to the Akasha drug case in as many months.
The first letter mentioned Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, his brother Abubakar Joho, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, and former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo as among those wanted over narcotics trade.
Others were Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny, former Othaya MP Mary Wambui, former Kilome MP John Harun Mwau, politician Stanley Livondo, and East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP Simon Mbugua.
