Kidero Temporarily Suspends His Campaigns

Former Nairobi county governor Evans Odhiambo Kidero has temporarily suspended his campaigns effective immediately. This decision comes after Kidero was in close contact with ODM leader Raila Odinga who has since tested positive for Covid-19. Therefore, Kidero has taken a precautionary move to get tested and to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to other people if he contacted it from Raila.

Kidero has been engaged in campaigns in preparation for to run for the Homabay gubernatorial elections next year. However, he has now announced that the suspension of the campaigns will also give him time to strategize his political move in a tight race that has attracted the interests of current deputy governor Hamilton Orata and women representative Gladys Wanga among other strong contenders.

Further, Kidero has announced that he is complying with President Kenyatta's directive that also suspended political gatherings for 30 days to allow for the containment of the upsurge of the Covid-19 cases in the country. Kidero has also announced that he will be tested for the Covid-19 virus immediately as a precautionary measurr too.
