Nairobi women representative Rachael Shebesh last weekend entertained two male Nairobi County Assembly representatives who are believed to be the last two witnesses among the seven others whom Shebesh lined up to testify against governor Dr Evans Kidero. According to impeccable sources, the night-long partying happened in the absence of the husband who had travelled abroad on private business.
Save for the two witnesses who remain active in the Shebesh case (which she refused to reconcile with Dr Kidero out of court) fve other witnesses have since withdrawn from the assault case in which Shebesh caused public disturbance in Governor Dr Evans Kidero’s office leading to a fracas during which she was allegedly slapped by the governor.
Many Nairobi County leaders urged Shebesh to withdraw the case but she remained adamant. It is said the two male representatives she entertained the whole night in the absence of her husband had threatened to also withdraw.
After the reconciliation flopped, Shebesh rushed to court to obtain orders barring her arrest, and claiming if the court can’t arrest governor Kidero then she too deserve the same rights.
“Governor Kidero having obtained orders staying any imminent prosecution against him now leaves me at risk of being arrested and charged if this court does not intervene and stay the same prosecution against me,” says Shebesh.
Among Nairobi leaders who are said to have urged Shebesh to drop her case is the county senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko, several MPs from CORD and a section of businessmen from Nairobi County known to her husband, Frank Shebesh.
