Former Nairobi Governor Finds Himself In The Hands Of EACC Once Again

Former Nairobi Governor Evans Odhiambo Kidero has been arrested over irregular payment of Sh68 million to a law firm.

A statement from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution today identified the law firm as that of M/s Wachira Mburu; Mwangi & Company Advocates.

Kidero’s Former Chief of Staff George Wainaina and former Councillor Paul Mutunga have also been arrested.

“Investigations established that one Steven Kariuki from the firm M/s Wachira Mburu, Mwangi and Company advocates was given instructions by Aduma Joshua Owuor – former acting Director Legal Affair of the then Nairobi City Council and now MP Nyakach Constituency to act on behalf of Nairobi City Council in HCC No.875 of 2010 Kyavee Holdings Limited versus City Council of Nairobi, without following the laid down procedure,” EACC said in a statement.

According to EACC Kyavee Holdings Limited never existed and therefore, had no legal capacity to sue the county.

“The advocate representing Kyavee Holdings Limited did not possess a valid practising certificate at the material time,” EACC said.

Further, the probe revealed that the disputed land was Mariakani Primary School’s playground and had not been re-allocated to anyone.With no services offered, the money was paid in two instalments of Sh10 million on June 13,  2011 and another of Sh58 million on January 7, 2014.
