Kidero, Passaris now political sweethearts

Nairobi woman representative aspirant Esther Passaris has come out strongly to endorse her one-time political nemesis Governor Evans Kidero, saying she will be campaigning with him.

Ms Passaris, who won the ODM Nairobi Woman Rep ticket, also said she fully supports his bid to be re-elected.

Ms Passaris was speaking during an interview on a local TV station on Monday night, where she also outlined her manifesto on how she was going to help the people of Nairobi if elected the county’s woman representative.

“I believe that if Kidero had done all the things that people say he has done wrong, then he should not have been in that office, the government had the machinery to remove him in terms of corruption. If you really believe that Kidero has stolen a lot of money then why hasn’t he been charged?”


She continued: “Kidero is the right man to be the governor of Nairobi again, and I will campaign for him and also campaign together.”

Last year in June, the two were not seeing eye to eye after City Hall allegedly pulled down her company’s billboards in Westlands.

The Nairobi businesswoman posted a series of unprintable tweets against Governor Kidero, which among other things, accused him of incompetence.

City Hall said Ms Passaris’ advertising firm, Adopt-A-Light Company, owes it Sh37.4 million.

But the businesswoman said City Hall owes her in excess of Sh800 million.
