I think my subject is clear :) , but I will add some facts that can help
to the decision: 

* It uses only deprecated python-kafka API [1] [2]
* It's not python3 compatible [3]
* We still don't have kafka testing in gate 

So, one year after the driver introduction, this one is still in bad shape
and doesn't match the requirements [4].

These reviews looks abandoned/outdated/unmaintained:

And of course, we will not drop the code now, but just deprecate it for
