Wednesday May 13, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has reportedly met former Nairobi Governor, Dr Evans Kidero, and offered him a lucrative post in his Cabinet.
According to renowned blogger, Robert Alai, Kidero, who has an ongoing corruption case, met the President on Tuesday and he offered Kidero the position of Industrialisation CS.
Kidero is a patented looter of public money and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has approved Kidero’s prosecution for irregular payment of Sh 28 million to rehabilitate lifts at City Hall Annex.
The EACC sent the investigation file to the Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji, late last year.
“On September 2, 2019, a report was compiled and forwarded to the DPP with recommendations that the suspects be charged with various offences,” the EACC said in its latest report to Parliament.
The DPP is yet to say whether Kidero should be charged.
However, in its report, EACC said its investigations established that the Sh28 million tender to Schindler Limited was improperly awarded.
When contacted, Kidero remained mum on the issue and maintained that the President is still his close friend.
