Kidero says he won't pay Shebesh for reconciliation

15 January 2014, 08:17 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Nairobi governor, Evans Kidero, has said he will not give cash maney to the county’s Women Representative, Rachael Shebesh, as a means of reconciliation over the ‘slap’ saga.

He said reconciliation cannot be bought with money and hoped to solve the matter in a peaceful way to enable the two to work together in serving the people of Nairobi.

Reports had emerged that Kidero was willing to pay millions to Shebesh to settle the case out of court as they had been directed by the High Court.

However, the seven days reconciliation period elapsed without a breakthrough.

Lawyers of the two parties said efforts to reconcile the two had failed, when they appeared in court on Monday.

Last week, Shebesh ruled out the possibility of settling her assault case against Kidero out-of-court, saying she was ready to press on with the charges.

According to Shebesh’s lawyer, Cecil Miller, his client was willing to face the preferred charges against her.

On his part, lawyer Tom Ojienda, representing Kidero, said Shebesh was not willing to solve the matter out of court as they had been directed.

It is alleged that Kidero slapped Shebesh on September 6, 2013, when she joined Nairobi City Council workers who were striking in storming Kidero’s office at City Hall.

Kidero later apologized to Shebesh following the incident.
