Former Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero has been arrested yet again. Police and anti-corruption detectives apprehended him at around 11.30am on Thursday morning.

This comes after Kidero was arrested earlier over graft claims but released later on bail pending investigations.

The detectives camped at his house in Muthaiga as they searched for documents and cash believed to link the governor to corrupt deals during his term as the Governor of Nairobi.

From 2 am in the morning, the investigators from the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision (EACC) arrived at his house as they searched for the documents.
Kidero protested that it was "pure harassment" and that he was innocent. He also added that it was not an arrest but he was to assist with the investigation.

The former governor is linked with graft in the Mumias Sugar company collapse and deals during his tenure at County Hall.

Mr Kidero was first arrested on August 8, 2018, and no solid evidence was produced enough to warrant his prosecution.

The investigation has also drawn in other suspects like former Nairobi county secretary Lillian Ndegwa, Mr Mwakanongo Gregory, ex-finance officer Jimmy Mutuku Kiamba, an ex-chief executive officer in charge of finance and planning, Stephen Ogago Osiro and Mr Luke Mugo, all related to finance departments in the County government.

All the suspects are accused of conspiring to commit fraud of 213 million shillings between 2014 and 2016.
