The Ethics and Anti-corruption commission (EACC) detectives and police officers have arrested ex-Nairobi Governor Dr. Evans Kidero at his Muthaiga home in Nairobi.

The officers raided Kidero’s home on Thursday at around 2am and until his arrest, they had been camping at the residence in search of money and documents on the graft cases against the ex-governor.

Kidero was on August, 8, 2018 arrested by EACC detectives and questioned at their headquarters at Integrity Centre.

On the orders of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Kidero and six former county officials were arraigned in court and charged with corruption and other economic crimes.

The Six officials charged alongside Kidero are County Secretary Lilian Ndegwa, Former finance and planning executive Gregory Mwakanongo, former chief finance officer Jimmy Mutuku, former accounting head Stephen Osiro, former acting head of Treasury Maurice Okere and Luke Mugo who was the former acting chief finance officer.

The other suspects who worked with companies Lodwar Wholesalers Ltd and Ngurumani Traders Ltd were Ms Grace Njeri and Mr John Githua – The duo was charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, which caused the county government to lose shs213,327,300 between years 2014 and 2016.

Allegedly, the suspects conspired to authorise the payment of cash to various companies for services that were not offered. It is reported that Lodwar Wholesalers Ltd, on different dates, deposited sh24 million to ex-governor Kidero.

However, the suspects denied all the charges against them.

Dr. Kidero was later released after posting a cash bail of sh2 million.
