Strange but I am afraid very normal in the banana republic where courts and court cases against individuals have been used as political weapons and "tools of the trade" for decades. But we have an independent judiciary now, I can hear you wondering. Relax! That has got nothing to do with who prosecutes cases. Apparently the file has been in some cabinet at the DPP's office gathering dust all this time but was suddenly retrieved yesterday. Why?
Both Kidero and Shebesh will be charged. Kidero will face assault charges whilst Shebesh will answer to the minor offense of creating disturbance.
Famous Shebesh slap of September 6th 2013 was captured on national TV. Moments later the Nairobi governor told the press he could not recall slapping anybody or anything about what had just happened. Within the hour charges and P3 forms were flying to police stations from both Shebesh and Kidero.
We know that Ms Shebesh has been threatening to go back to Raila Odinga and ODM where she launched her political career not too long ago. We also know that her relationship with the JUBILEE high command has been going through some trying times recently But in Kidero's case we may need to dig deeper. The Nairobi governor is still on an extended passionate honeymoon with the ruling JUBILEE government. What could possibly have gone wrong in the middle of this happy time?
Interestingly the DPP has ordered Kidero to be charged with assault which means that the claims he made of being assaulted in the groin by Ms Shebesh have been cast aside. If this is indeed true and Kenya were not a banana republic then it would have opened quite a number of smelly cans of worms. Giving a false report to the police is a criminal offense that 10 witnesses and Kidero would have to prove they did not commit. And then there is the doctor at Mama Lucy hospital in Komarock who signed the P3 form that Kidero presented to the police as "proof" that he had indeed been assaulted.
