Tobiko agrees to release formula for Kidero/Shebesh

Nairobi - The saga involving Nairobi governor Evans Kidero and Women's representative Rachel Shebesh will come to a close in the coming week.
This follows the agreement between the two parties and Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko on how to ensure the matter goes to bed.
It has been agreed that the two politicians will report to the police next week to state their reconciliatory stand after which Tobiko will formally drop the charges against the them.
The two had earlier agreed to an off the court settlement in their assault case, but the DPP had said he would still consider charging them.
He has now however taken a sifter stand, saying that as long as the two report to the police in the next seven days, the charges will be dropped.
" A reconciliation agreement has been served to the DPP but we wish to
point out that his office was neither party to the process leading to
the conclusion of the agreement neither the agreement itself.
" If they
have reconciled they will also have to withdraw the petition against the
DPP, Tobiko said in a letter presewnted to the High court.
" The determination of the criminal proceedings it is the
petitioners who should present themselves before
the police where they originally made their respective complaints and
withdraw the same,” the DPP said.
According to sources, the two camps have agreed to the process and they will move this week, with Kidero heading to the Central Police Station and Shebesh the Parliament Police Post.
The two had been charged of violent conduct and disturbance of the peace by the DPP but after a rocky spell, agreed to an off the record reconciliation process.
