RACHAEL SHEBESH REVEALS Evans KIDERO’s Sh 67 million CORRUPTION SCANDALPolitics 07:19
Wednesday June 19, 2013 - Nairobi Governor, Dr Evans Kidero, is currently swimming in murky waters after he was accused of mismanaging Sh 67 million by awarding a multi-million contract to refurbish the Governor’s office without advertising the tender.
The shocking revelations were revealed by Nairobi Women’s Representative Rachael Shebesh who said the relevant committee of the Nairobi County Assembly should take up the matter and investigate how the tender was awarded.
“Governors have been complaining about lack of funds and it is important that the County Assembly Committee takes up the matter and furnish the public with the truth,” Shebesh said.
Shebesh said she will liaise with Nairobi Senator, Mike Gideon Sonko, to raise the matter in Parliament and the Senate to enable Kidero explain why he is mismanaging funds at the expense of providing basic services to Nairobi residents.
However when contacted, Kidero who sounded arrogant, denied the allegations saying he has authority to use the funds even without approval from Nairobi County Assembly.
The scandal erupts at a time Kidero has been accused of not paying city council employees for the last two months.
By Tuesday evening no City Council employee had received their salary despite threats of downing tools this week.
