The Messiah? Photos of Former Nairobi Governor Dr Kidero Riding on a Bodaboda Cause a Storm Online

The 2010 amended Constitution that brought about devolution has greatly changed the way of governance and has brought governance close to the people.

The devolution brought about the 47 counties currently in Kenya. Dr Evans Odhiambo Kidero went into records, making history as the First Nairobi County Governor.

Kidero served one term as Governor before Mike Mbuvi Sonko took over the reigns of power as the Second Nairobi County Governor.

Photos of Dr. Kidero taking a ride on a bodaboda have surfaced online triggering mixed reactions from Kenyans. Some have likened the act to that of Jesus Christ who took a ride on a donkey to show humility.
