Kidero to sue everyone who mentioned him in Tunoi bribery case

02 February 2016, 14:03

Nairobi - Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has threatened to sue anyone who will link him to the alleged bribery of Justice Philip Tunoi with KES 200 million.

According to The Star, Kidero who appeared before the Special Committee investigating Justice Tunoi, denied bribing him so that the Supreme Court could rule in his favour in an election petition challenging his election.

Kidero has reiterated that he’s neither met the judge in person or his accuser Geoffrey Kiplagat.

Kidero has instead accused lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi of pushing a vendetta.

The Governor claims that Abdullahi is bitter that he did not hire him in the election petition filed by Ferdinand Waititu who challenged his 2013 election as Nairobi Governor.

Waititu has since been elected as Kabete MP.

According to Capital News, Kidero, who is Nairobi Governor, claimed the lawyer wanted to extort him of KES 25 million after he turned down his representation following Waititu's petition.

He told a special committee of the Judicial Service Commission on Tuesday that the lawyer, "unhappy" with his decision, went on to represent Waititu.
