Apologize or face the music, Kidero tells Khalwale

26 June 2015, 12:55 William Korir

Nairobi - Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has told Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale to apologize for calling him a thief or face the law.

Kidero in a latter to the outspoken Khalwale said that he would take action on Khalwale unless he apologizes for the barb he took at him over his management of the Mumias Sugar Company when he was the CEO. 

Khalwale, speaking in Mumias Wednesday, called Kidero 'The perfect of thieves', whilst urging President Uhuru Kenyatta to have him investigated and jailed over the woes facing Mumias.

Through a letter signed by his lawyer Tom Ojienda, Kidero said that unless Khalwale apologizes, legal action will be taken over the matter.

" We have instructions to seek other incidental remedies against you without further notice or reference to you at your own risk as to costs and attendant consequences," Ojienda said.

"Our client demands that you immediately and unconditionally prominently publish an apology to Kidero in at least two newspapers of national circulation, in the next three days", he added.

On Wednesday, Khalwale said Kidero was among those responsible for the collapse of Mumias Sugar Company during his tenure as the CEO.

"On the fight of corruption I will support you, Mumias did not just die. You should pursue the criminals. The criminals who looted Mumias are led by their prefect governor Kidero, hold them accountable," Khalwale told President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Mumias was handed a KES 1 billion cheque by President Kenyatta, as a bailout to revive the ailing sugar milling company.

Kidero has always denied that he has anything to do with the failed state of Kenya's biggest sugar miller during his 5 year stint as CEO.
