Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has given Governor Evans Kidero and women representative Rachel Shebesh a seven day ultimatum to settle their dispute or face fresh elections.

Senator Sonko on Wednesday threatened to institute the process of recalling the Nairobi Governor and the women representative should they  fail to reach a settlement within seven days.

Mr Sonko said the feud between Governor Kidero and Ms Shebesh is affecting development in Nairobi.

He made the remarks during a tour across Makadara, Starehe and Dagoretti South constituencies in which he distributed cheques to young entrepreneurs worth sh 6 million.

Governor Kidero and Ms Shebesh were in Septemeber 2013 involved in a scuffle at City Hall in the full glare of the media.

The incident happened when Ms Shebesh, accompanied by aggrieved Nairobi City County workers who are demanding better pay, went to Dr Kidero’s office.

The Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko subsequently wrote to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation boss Ndegwa Muhoro asking him to prefer assault charges against the governor.

Equally, Mr Tobiko recommended that Ms Shebesh should be charged with creating public disturbance.

Governor Kidero and Ms Shebesh have both obtained court orders barring the police from arresting and charging them for their respective offences.
