Lawyer Miguna Miguna has criticised Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’s new plan to deal with drug dealers and peddlers along Kenya’s coast.
On his Twitter account, the controversial lawyer accused Matiang’i of dining with the said drug lords.
Miguna went further to mention Mike Sonko, Ali Hassan Joho, William Kabogo and Harun Mwau as some of the drug peddlers in Kenya.
Miguna’s sentiments come a day after Matiang’í announced new plans to deal with drug peddlers along the coast.
According to the Interior CS, drug trafficking has led to the rise in the number of killer gangs reigning terror on Coast residents.
Speaking in Mombasa on Sunday, Matiangí said his docket is prepared to start the ‘painful’ journey of fishing out the peddlers.
Matiang’i further accused the drug lords of being a stumbling block to the youth programmes in Mombasa for their own personal gains.
“We will do whatever it takes. We cannot surrender the lives of young people to drug dealers. What kind of society would we be?” declared Matiangí.
Coast leaders present in the meeting with Matiang’i on Sunday included Nyali MP Mohamed Ali, Mombasa Deputy Governor William Kingi, Senator Mohamed Faki, Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir, Likoni MP Mishi Mboko and IG Hillary Mutyambai.
The CS promised Kenyans that they would see results of the new operation, stating that even if it means “looking among themselves (government officials)” to deal with the situation.
Matiang’i’s announcement comes a week after a gang attacked residents of Bamburi, leaving 14 people with injuries.
