Kidero’s clash with the EACC has been going on over the past two years when the anti-corruption body started investigating the former Nairobi city boss.

Interestingly, Kidero fell into the radar of the EACC by a mistake committed by his son, Ronald ‘Ron’ Odhiambo Kidero.

Kidero Foundation

Ron, who is an expert in finance auditing, runs the Evans Kidero Foundation together with other trustees, while his father serves as patron and is not involved in the day-to-day operations.

He oversees the finances as the foundation's treasurer, and had failed to file the relevant returns for three years, attracting the eyes of the EACC.

In 2016, the EACC moved to court seeking to freeze, and investigate accounts of Evans Kidero Foundation, which allegedly held Sh2.7 billion that was suspected to be proceeds of corruption.

The foundation has since moved to court and successfully managed to delay the EACC’s audit of its bank accounts.

In March, the EACC finally got a chance to nail the former Governor after a damning report by audit firm KPMG, which covered revenue, debts, cash and banking as well as assets, indicated that Sh21 billion was not accounted for by Dr Kidero when he left office in 2017.
