Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has been arrested by EACC officers over graft allegations. Kidero, and seven others were found culpable of alleged criminal activities involving Nairobi City County government touching on the mismanagement and embezzlement of public funds.

This comes after an investigation was conducted by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC). The DPP directed the Commission to proceed and have the named persons arrested and arraigned in court to answer to the corruption charges, and is also satisfied that the named persons are criminally culpable jointly and severally.

The latest arrest follows a list of other high profile arrests that have been done recently, with the war against graft going a notch higher.
