City land grabbers and cartels sponsoring rivals, says Kidero

City land grabbers and cartels sponsoring rivals, says Kidero

Cartels and billionaires believed to have made their fortune through irregular land deals in Nairobi are sponsoring candidates to run for city governor’s seat in order protect their ill-gotten wealth. Governor Evans Kidero has claimed.

Kidero who is facing a serious onslaught from Jubilee aspirants for Nairobi’s top seat now sys his opponents are being sponsored by a clique of tycoons who made their money through questionable land deals in the city.

He said they are desperate to protect their wealth and as such are backing people they believe will not go after them.

These same people who made money on land deals are the people who are saying that Nairobi has its owners and that Nairobi’s governor should be from a certain region and they now want to use their billions to impose a candidate on Nairobians,” Dr Kidero told a congregation at Calvary Covenant Centre in Komarock in Nairobi.

He said he was being fought by the cartels who are not happy by the way he has cleaned the city of syndicates.

The governor claimed that business moguls have made enough billions and now they want to sponsor one of their own to protect their interest at city hall.

He said he will not be intimidated but instead will properly deal with the remnants.

“They want to bring a candidate against me because I have fought cartels in the city. Cartels no longer have relevance here. We have fought them and we will continue to fight them and let us not allow them to come back because we know what will happen if they do so,” he said.

Only last week, Kidero accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of protecting cartels at City hall.

His accusation came just two days the president unleashed a scathing attack on Kidero for allegedly running down the city and mismanaging county allocations.

But Kidero turned the gun to Mr Kenyatta blaming him of attempting to shield corrupt remnants frustrating his administration.

Kidero has since pleaded with Nairobi residents with Nairobi residents to support his re-election bid and help weed out cartels in the capital city.
