Kidero clears the air on the Mumias Sugar Company question that hangs over his head

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has come out to shade light on the Mumias Sugar Company that has been hanging over his head causing him nightmares.

Speaking to one of the TV station in the country on Wednesday during an interview, Kidero said that his trouble began when the media started reporting about the issue without really verifying the facts.

“The whole issue of Mumias was perpetuated by the media whey they started covering the issue without getting the facts right,” said Kidero.

He said that he became the CEO of Mumias Sugar Company at the age of 28 years old and by then he was earning a seven-figure salary which enabled him to save and invest a lot.

According to him what he has is as a result of an effort of his services to the company as an employee and not from corrupt dealings.

When he was asked to comment about the phrase that is going on in social media that says, “If kidero killed Nairobi then Sonko will bury it”

Kidero responded by saying that he has no regrets as a leader because he has done enough for the city, for example, he has disseminated land cartel and delivered the required service to the residents of Nairobi.

He further said that if Sonko was elected as the next governor of Nairobi it will be a disaster. Lastly, he said that the biggest challenge that is facing the residents of Nairobi is unemployment because the city annually receives 800,000 potential employees yet it can only absorb 50,000 of them.
