Kidero priceless reaction as DPP says he was “well fed” in jail

Details of Kidero's night in jail

Kidero’s lawyers started off by raising several complaints to the magistrate, saying their client had been harassed through the unnecessary delays in arraigning him in court.

However, the senior prosecutor who represent the DPP, disputed the claims saying that the delay was caused by Kidero’s supporters who had surrounded EACC offices at Integrity centre.

The prosecutor caused a light moment when he said that the former Governor was “well-fed and allowed a lot of sleep”.

Kidero, who was seated in the dock smiled broadly as the rest of the courtroom burst out in laughter.

Unlike most of the corruption suspects who ordinarily spend the night in police cells, Kidero was lucky to have been held at EACC basement jail where the conditions are much better.
