Why Shebesh forgave Kidero
Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero and Nairobi Women Representative Ms Rachael Shebesh have finally buried the hatchet. The politicians ended their five-month feud after ‘seeing the light’ following the intervention of the head of the Anglican Church in Kenya, Archbishop Eliud Wabukala.
The two politicians approached the prelate separately after attempts to resolve the dispute, in which Dr Kidero is accused of slapping Ms Shebesh on September 6 last year, were scuttled by third parties seeking to cash in on the fallout.
Dr Wabukala told NairobiNews on Sunday that they sat late into the night on at least four occasions in a bid to strike a deal.
Speaking shortly after, Ms Shebesh declared at a press briefing in Mwiki that she has forgiven Dr Kidero; the Archbishop asked Kenyans to embrace the two leaders.
“I want to thank her for that bold step. We are immensely grateful for the two leaders because it was not easy at all getting them to agree on this. The reconciliation talks could sometimes go up to very late in the night,” he said.
