Fired Nairobi County official sues Kidero

01 February 2016, 22:21

Nairobi - Sacked Nairobi County Government Environment Minister Evans Ondieki has sued Governor Evans Kidero and City Hall for what he terms as unlawful termination.

In his suit papers, Capital News reported, Ondieki stated that no reason was given for his dismissal and he was not afforded an opportunity to be heard.

Ondieki further pointed out that he has always been diligent in his duties and the Governor has never complained about his performance.

" The applicant has always performed his duties and responsibilities in a diligent manner and the first respondent (Kidero) has never complained in any way whatsoever about his performance,” the petition stated.

The Star reported that there had already been friction between the two prior to the sacking.

" The 1st respondent’s action of dismissing the applicant is a breach if his legitimate expectation. The respondents are bound by the Constitution to promote, protect and fulfil the values and principals in the Constitution fairness and justice in the discharge of their duties and responsibilities,” it said.

Ondieki now wants the court to reverse his dismissal and prohibit the vacant post from being filled until the matter is heard and determined.

Governor Evans Kidero did not give a reason for firing Ondieki on January 26, days after reshuffling his government. He appointed Urban Renewals and Housing CEC Tom Odongo to replace him in acting capacity.

Kidero reshuffled his team in what he said would "ensure efficient service delivery to Nairobi residents".
