, NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 13 – The NGOs Coordination Board has suspended the entire Board of the Evans Kidero Foundation after allegations that it has received funds from suspicious sources and also deviated from its registered objectives.
The Board through its Executive Director Fazul Mohammed has written to the management to provide it with audited bank accounts and annual returns for the past four years within 14 days.
Fazul has also asked the Kidero Foundation to provide the Board with certified bank accounts and details of all donors and financiers of the foundation since 2013 saying it has failed to file annual returns since 2013.
The Board has also written to Central Bank, Director of CID and Family Bank to freeze the account of the Foundation until the NGOs Board clears it.
The Foundation was registered in October 2012 and was in the news this year after Justice Joseph Onguto of the High Court in Nairobi stopped officers from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) from investigating its accounts at Family Bank.
The EACC had also sought to investigate Dr Kidero’s accounts as well as those of his wife, Susan Mboya.
The EACC had told the court that Dr Kidero and Dr Mboya had colluded to corruptly transfer public funds to those accounts.
