Kenya: Kidero Nominates Kimori to Replace Sacked Ondieki

By Lillian Mutavi

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero on Monday nominated Peter Kimori to replace sacked County Government Environment Executive Evans Ondieki.

Mr Ondieki was sacked last month following a standoff between him and Dr Kidero over uncollected garbage in the city.

Dr Kidero made his intention clear that he will not reinstate the official who has taken the matter in court arguing that his dismissal was illegal.

Eng Kimori, the nominee, will be vetted by the County Assembly before taking over the new position.

Members of the public are expected to submit their petition on the candidate before February 29 according to the clerk of County Assembly Jacob Ngwele.
