Suna East MP Junet Mohamed on Tuesday insulted Deputy President William Ruto and Coast Regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa during a discussion on Citizen TV.
Tuesday’s The Big Question discussion, which focused on the war on drugs, begun with a bit of civility with Junet claiming that Jubilee was hell-bent on using a report presented by the late George Saitoti in 2010 to hit out at Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and gain ground in Coast region.
It was at this point that he referring to Nelson Marwa as a monkey for allegedly seeking to frustrate Governor Joho.
“Why we think they are targeting Joho, this monkey…this Coast regional coordinator has been on Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho’s case for a while, abusing people and issuing alarming sentiments targeting Governor Joho,” he said.
Efforts by the show host Hussein Mohamed to have Junet Mohamed apologise, fell on deaf eye as the MP stuck to his guns, daring Nelson Marwa to take him to court.
On recent warnings issued by Deputy President William Ruto to drug baron at the Coast, Junet said:”In fact paedophiles are worse than drug peddlers.”
This was seen as an oblique jab targetting the deputy president, coming just days after a woman, Prisca Chemutai, claimed she had a child with him when she was in the University.
Junet’s remarks of Ruto cannot however be substantiated as it is not yet clear what age Prisca at the time of their relationship.
The DP has however accepted to having sired a child with Prisca, though refuted claims that he had neglected his child.
Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa however defended the government’s resilience on the war on drugs, claiming Governor Joho’s perceived fury over President Uhuru and DP Ruto’s remarks may signify guilt.
The debate came as a talk point after Joho called out the government for allegedly targeting him in the war against drugs.
Addressing the press on Tuesday, Governor Joho said he had no links to drug trafficking business adding that if the government had evidence they should arrest him.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president William Ruto should first clean their house which has drug traffickers instead of focusing their attention on me.”
“This is a political gimmick that was employed in 2013 and is being repeated in this election. They will not success,” he said.
