Out of court settlement for Kidero, Shebesh
03 January 2014, 13:56
Nairobi - The High Court has directed that Nairobi governor Evans Kidero and women's representative Rachel Shebesh seek out of court settlement for their grievances.
Judge Isaac Lenaola ordered the two to seek reconciliation and get back to him in two weeks time over the matter.
The ruling follows the decision by the office of the public prosecutor DPP to seek criminal charges against the two following their altercation in September last year.
Shebesh was allegedly slapped by Kidero, a matter which she reported to the police, with Kidero also reporting to the police that he had been provoked by his counterpart.
If the two will not have agreed on reconciliation then the court will have to choice but to hear the case by the DPP against them.
The DPP had directed the CID to press charges against the two.
The consideration by Judge Lenaola was pressed home following a petition to stop the court case by one Alex Achoki, who had contested the decision to have the case by arguing that it was in bad faith.
