BREAKING NEWS: Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero arrested, again

20th September, 2018

Police and Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) detectives are searching the Nairobi home of former Governor Evans Kidero for documents. The team of security officers arrived at his residence at around 2am.
The former Governor who is also the ex-Mumias Sugar CEO is facing corruption-related charges and is out on bail.

Kidero and six former county officials who served during his tenure were arrested on August 8 by anti-corruption detectives after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) recommended that charges relating to "corruption and related economic crimes" be brought against them.

In the first count, Kidero with former Head of Treasury Maurice Ochieng’ Okere were charged with conspiracy to commit an offence of corruption leading to the loss of Sh213 million from the NCC. “On diverse dates between January 16, 2014 and January 25, 2016, at Nairobi City County, (the accused) jointly conspired to commit a fraud leading to loss of public funds in the sum of Sh213,327,300 for services not rendered,” read the charge sheet.

Kidero denied the charges and was granted Sh2 million cash bail, or, alternatively, a personal bond of Sh5 million and surety of Sh3 million.
