CORD PRESS STATEMENT ON INCIDENT INVOLVING NAIROBI COUNTY GOVERNOR DR EVANS KIDERO
The CORD leadership has noted with concern the widely publicised incident allegedly involving the Governor of Nairobi County, Dr Evans Kidero, and the Nairobi County Women’s Representative, Rachel Shebesh.
While the details are still fuzzy, the allegations border on impropriety and breach of the coalition’s leadership code and our country’s constitution. They need to be investigated impartially by relevant agencies of state and due process followed.
Cord remains steadfast in its commitment to the rule of law, justice and accountable leadership. Consequently, the coalition has commenced its own inquiry to establish what transpired at the Governor’s office to inform the appropriate course of action.

Chair, Cord Secretariat Management Board
