Kidero went missing at Madaraka Day meetings

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero failed to attend the first Madaraka Day held by the county in Starehe Constituency.

Dr Kidero, similarly, did not turn up at the Uhuru Park rally organised by his Cord alliance.

County officials could not reveal where the governor was nor why he did not attend the fete.

County chief of staff George Wainaina, when asked, said that Dr Kidero had not communicated to them.

But County Planning Executive Christopher Khaemba, who delivered the governor’s speech, said that Dr Kidero had other commitments.

Starehe MP Maina Kamanda who spoke at Pumwani sportsground, called for political tolerance, respect and peace by the opposition.

“We only have one president in Kenya. Those trying to use backdoor or think of nusu mkate should forget it,” he said.

Hundreds of city residents turned up for the celebrations and were entertained by traditional music and folk dances and school choirs.

The National Youth Service (NYS) personnel, who are undertaking youth empowerment programmes in the Mukuru slums, also entertained the eager crowd with various performances.
