PRESS RELEASE REGARDING THE INCIDENT AT CITY HALL YESTERDAY Nairobi September 07, 2013 Dr.

Evans Kidero the Governor of Nairobi has termed the incident that took place at City Hall yesterday as unfortunate and regrettable and assured residents of Nairobi that the matter which was now in the hands of the investigative authorities will be pursued within the due process to its logical conclusion. In a statement issued in Nairobi today, Dr. Kidero for the first time revealed that during the commotion that ensued at City Hall yesterday, he was personally assaulted around his lower abdomen, an act he found embarrassing, disgusting and highly disrespectful. “I wish to regard what happened to me yesterday at City Hall as a despicable act of aggression on my personal integrity and that of the office of the Governor”. Dr. Kidero said that they have information that the storming of City Hall yesterday was a premeditated act orchestrated by negative forces who are opposed to the on-going reforms to streamline governance of the City.

For the past 24 hours, I am aware that there has been a lot of speculation on social media as to what actually happened during the incident. I wish to appeal to Kenyans and especially residents of Nairobi to desist from speculation and presumptive actions and let the due process take its course. Finally, I wish to re-assure residents of Nairobi that we remain firmly committed to fulfilling our mandate to make Nairobi the city of choice in Africa for all to invest, work and live.
