Kidero denies paying Shebesh Ksh. 30 Million for slap
Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has denied reports that he paid former Nairobi Woman Representative and Gender Chief Administrative Secretary Ksh. 30 Million for the infamous slap.
Speaking to a local publication, Kidero laughed off Shebesh’s claims saying some of her claims should not be taken seriously since she is sick.
“We all know Shebesh is not OK. She is sick and some of her claims should not be taken seriously. That’s all I can say on the matter,” he said.
In an exclusive interview with Ghetto Radio, Shebesh claimed that Kidero paid her almost Ksh. 30 Million for the slap.
Shebesh described the payment as an out of court settlement by the billionaire.
“Kidero alilipa doo mingi sana, pesa mingi sana, hawezi repeat… sikutoka hivyo, sikutokanga hivyo… to slap a woman in this country, nowadays there is a precedence… na sijui kama watu wako na doo waweze kulipa… Alilipa almost 30 Million,” said Shebesh.

The mistake was to think that you can have the arrogance and the audacity to slap a fellow woman leader who had come to fight for the rights of others,” said Shebesh.
“So if didn’t go hard on Kidero, I would have opened another floodgate of every woman vying for a seat neing treated in the same way Kidero treated me,” she added.
Kidero slapped Shebesh in September 2013 shortley after he had been elected into office.
Shebesh had stormed the former governor’s office demanding that the governor addresses the plight of striking Nairobi County workers.
Some of the workers had been interdicted for allegedly going on strike.
Kidero lost the 2017 election to the now impeached Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko. The billionaire did not contest the results in court.
He is currently eyeing the Homabay gubernatorial seat. He has officially declared his interest and has started campaigning in earnest.
“I will be buried in Homa Bay. It is where my parents come from. I want to focus on education, agriculture, roads and industries. We have a 700Km stretch of beach in Homabay, the potential is is infinite. Homabay has high child and maternal mortality rates. It has the lowest number of tap water connections in Kenya. I want to change that,” he told a local publication.
