Court blocks EACC from investigating Kidero’s properties

Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) has on Thursday been blocked by the High Court from investing for Nairobi Governor Kidero’s properties.

Judge Hedwig Ong’udi issued a temporary order restraining order in favour of the former Governor before he makes his ruling next week Tuesday.

According to the former Governor, he has faced all sorts of harassment, threats and intimidation after stepping away from politics.

He further said that EACC investigations have infringed his right to privacy. EACC on the other hand claim Kidero is facing criminal charges and that’s why they raided his house looking for evidence.

Kidero feels he has unfairly been targeted saying that he accumulated his wealth gradually since 1983 when he started working.

It will be remembered that in September detectives from EACC raided his house before taking him to his office where they searched for documents they believed would be crucial for their case.

Hon. Evans Kidero is under investigation for an unaccounted amount of Ksh 213 million from the public fund. He is accused among nine others.
