Evans Kidero

NAIROBI: A former governor of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, has been arrested over an alleged irregular payment of $665,485 (£515,976) to a law firm, local media reports say.

Evans Kidero was arrested along with his former chief of staff George Wainaina, the reports add.

Earlier, Kenya’s prosecuting authority issued a statement saying there was sufficient evidence to charge 17 people, including Mr Kidero and Mr Wainaina, with money laundering, conspiracy to commit corruption, abuse of office, and unlawful acquisition of public office.

The accused or their legal representatives have not yet commented.
