Rachel Shebesh Reveals That Kidero Paid Her Ksh. 30 Million Over Slap
Former Nairobi Women Representative Rachel Shebesh has revealed that former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero paid her Ksh. 30,000,000 over the slap.
Shebesh who was on an interview with Ghetto Radio’s Majimaji and King Kafu says that the payment was an out of court settlement with Kidero.
“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 Ksh 30 Million,” said Shebesh.
Reports previously indicated that Kidero had paid Shebesh Ksh. 100 Million over the slap.
“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 I didn’t go strong on Kidero, I would have opened another floodgate of every woman vying for a seat being treated in the same way Kidero treated me,” she said.
Kidero slapped Shebesh in September 2013 shortly after he had been elected into office.
Shebehs had stormed Kidero’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.
