Let's meet in court, Khalwale tells Kidero

27 June 2015, 16:49 William Korir

Nairobi - Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale has told Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero that they will meet in court if he chooses to sue him over remarks he made regarding the misappropriation of the Mumias Sugar Company.

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

Khalwale though, says that nothing will stop him from speaking the truth regarding the massive hole the Sugar firm finds itself in.

" We can meet in court. I will not apologize for what I said because my conviction is true and my conscience is alright. Kidero must answer for what he has done at Mumias," he stated.

He also insisted that the buck stops with the CEO wherever a problem hits any organization and Kidero is no different.

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.
