Deputy President William Ruto addressing the Press in Movenpick Hotel – The Hague, Netherlands on 15th Oct. 2013

Posted by African Press International on October 15, 2013

Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto held a press conference today in Movenpick Hotel, Hague where he emphasised that he and President Kenyatta needed to be given time to run the country and hopes the court understands their constitutional obligations.

Mr Ruto told the media that if the court accepts their request not to be present in court at all times during the trial, then they will not see any reason to pursue the request to the United Nations where they want a deferral – having the case suspended until they are out of office.

Kenya: Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero & Hon. Member of Parliament Rachel Shebesh’s slapping

Posted by African Press International on September 6, 2013

Kenya: Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero says it was not him slapping Nairobi Women Representative Rachael Shebesh after an altercation in his office.

Shebesh was among county of Nairobi workers who stormed Kidero’s office on Friday afternoon demonstrating demanding a pay rise. After the incident Kidero while addressing a press conference denied slapping Hon Shebesh.

Kidero told the media “I was in my office but I don’t remember or have any recollection of slapping anyone. All i know is that a group of people about 30-40 tried to force themselves into my office led by a Honourable Member of Parliament“,.

After his address to the press he went to Central Police Station to record a statement about the incident.

When other senior officers have slapped people, they have lost their job. Kidero may now have extra problems on his hands. Election petition against his election in March this year as the Governor of Nairobi County filed by Mr Waititu is yet to be decided by the High Court.

You can watch the video of Kidero ‘slapping’ Shebesh here below:

This is cruelty against women. Would he have dared slap a male member of parliament?
