Kidero names nominee to replace sacked Ondieki

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has nominated Engineer Peter Kimori to replace sacked county government executive for environment Evans Ondieki.

Mr Ondieki was sacked last month following a stand-off between over uncollected garbage in the city.

He has since gone to court to demand for his reinstatement.

In the suit, he argued that his sack was unlawful and sought to have the county government blocked from appointing a replacement until his case his determined.

Engineer Kimori will now have to be vetted by Members of the County Assembly.

City residents are expected to submit petitions on the candidate before February 29, 2016, according to the clerk of County Assembly Jacob Ngwele.
