Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero Charged Fraud

Former Governor Evans Kidero and 12 others were charged in a Nairobi Court on Friday. They stand accused of conspiring to defraud the Nairobi City County of Ksh. 58 million.

The charges outlined in the court documents include conspiracy to commit corruption, abuse of office, unlawful acquisition of public property, and money laundering. These alleged offenses took place between January 6, 2014, and January 16, 2014.

The accusations specifically revolve around the unlawful disbursement of Ksh. 58 million, designated as payment to a law firm.

They all pleaded not guilty, and the court maintained the earlier cash bail that had been granted to them.
