Former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero is likely to spent the night at his palatial home tonight if he manages to raise sh8 million cash bail or a 20 million bond.
Yes, Kidero has earned temporary freedom but he might have to part with one of his kidneys to really get it.
The embattled politician has spent the past 4 days, eating Githeri without avocado since he was arrested at 4AM on Friday.
The former county boss has been charged with defrauding the county government of sh68 million which he allegedly paid to a law firm during his time at city hall.
Kidero protested the manner in which he was arrested and incarcerated after being denied police bail. He told the court that detectives told him that they were acting on ‘orders from above’ to detain him over the weekend.
On Monday, lawyer Miguna Miguna advised him to name all the people (including Raila and ODM) he shared the loot with.
