DPP officially drops Kidero/ Shebesh charges

21 March 2014, 21:20 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Director of Public Prosecutions DPP has officially dropped charges against Nairobi governor Evans Kidero and Women's representative Rachel Shebesh.

The DPP noted that Dr Kidero and Ms Shebesh having withdrawn the respective petitions they had lodged at the High Court forced his hand in the matter, he said in a statement.

He further said that the fact that the two had complied with orders he had put in place convinced him to remove the case.

And with other petitioners also withdrawing, he had no reason to continue with the case.

"In light of the formal withdrawal of the respective complaints, it would serve no purpose and may in fact be an exercise in futility for the Director of Public Prosecutions to proceed on the charges.

"In the addition, petition filed by Alex Nchore Ochako on the same subject matter was dismissed with costs,” he said.

"The DPP therefore has directed that his earlier decision and directive to charge the two is withdrawn,” the statement read.
