The former Nairobi county governor honourable Evans Kidero had been under the pressure by the county government claiming that he misused the funds while he was in the office where the case was taken to court of anti-corruption.
The anti-corruption court has struck out one of the graft charges facing former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero after finding there were insufficient details of the alleged crime.
Chief magistrate Douglas Ogoti said the charge, in which Dr Kidero and Nyakach MP Aduma Owour are accused of conspiring to defraud the Nairobi County Government of Sh58 million, lacks clarity hence it violates the Constitution and the criminal procedure code.
