NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 21 – The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Keriako Tobiko on Friday affirmed that his office had nothing to do with Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and Women representative Rachael Shebesh’s decision to settle their differences out of court.
This announcement came after the duo recorded consents and forwarded them to the DPP to decide whether to terminate criminal charges against them, following a scuffle last September.
In a letter addressed to the Registrar of the High Court, Tobiko pointed out that his office would not oppose the decision since he was neither a party to the process leading to the conclusion of the case nor to the agreement itself.
“As for the termination of the criminal process, it is the petitioners who should present themselves before the police where they originally filed their respective complaints and signed the same,” the letter read.
He advised them to present themselves to the police before the case returns to court next week Friday.
The two decided to bury the hatchet earlier this month with Shebesh saying that the church guided her decision to forgive Kidero.
Shebesh said the wrangles were deterring the county progress as the two leaders were not working as one.
Prior to the reconciliation, Tobiko had in January directed detectives at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to charge Kidero for assaulting Shebesh.
He further directed the police to charge the City Woman Representative with creating a disturbance.
