New case wants Kidero ruled 'unfit for office'

07 February 2014, 17:41

Nairobi - Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero’s sleepless nights may not come to an end as expected.


Soon after signing an agreement ending his assault dispute with Women Representative Rachel Shebesh, the Organization for National Empowerment Chair Benjamin Ndolo has taken Kidero to court challenging his ability to hold public office.


Mr Ndolo wants the Nairobi City County Governor’s office declared vacant since Dr Kidero’s actions are gross misconduct.


Mr Ndolo alleges that Kidero has on several occasions involved himself in corrupt practices and should be prosecuted for flouting the Leadership and Integrity Act besides attempting to have his legal fees paid up from the City County Council’s bank accounts.


According to Ndolo, Article 181 of the constitution states that a county governor may be removed from office for grossly violating the constitution.


“There are serious reasons for believing that the county governor has committed a crime under the national or international law, abuse of office or gross misconduct and thus brought disgrace to the office of the Governor of Nairobi City County,” said Mr Ndolo.


He alludes to the ‘Shebesh slap’ assault incident terming it as brawl and unethical.


Mr Ndolo also alleges that following the incident Dr Kidero shamelessly lied that he could not recollect having slapped anyone.


He claims that it appears ironical for Dr Kidero to accept being forgiven by Ms Shebesh following reports published in a local daily newspaper on a text message sent by him to Ms Shebesh on accepting to be forgiven.


“How can one be forgiven and accept forgiveness without having erred or wronged?” Ndolo argues.


He further claims that a state officer is required to maintain high ethical and moral standards as well as demonstrate honesty in the conduct of public affairs especially while conveying information to the public.


He insists that this suit seeks to save the face and image of the office of the Governor of Nairobi City County from ridicule and mockery.


In September 6 last year, at City Hall, Dr Kidero slapped Ms Shebesh claiming that he had offended him and denied having slapped her despite several videos on social media on the sequence of events.


Both of them recorded statements with the police as Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko said he would have Dr Kidero charged with assaulting Ms Shebesh while she would face charges of breach of peace and creating disturbance.


Dr Kidero moved to court and obtained orders stopping their arrests. Shebesh also sought orders to lift the temporary orders blocking the prosecution of the Nairobi Governor.


High Court judge David Majanja declined to enjoin ODM, the CORD coalition and the Nairobi City County in the case filed by Dr Kidero saying that that the matter concerns criminal proceedings which take a certain course, where political interests cannot be placed over or above criminal charges.


Ms Shebesh was the first to come out to declare forgiving Dr Kidero for the interest of the people of Nairobi City County.
