Yesterday, the Court of Appeal sent Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero packing, ruling that Waititu was not given a fair hearing by the High Court.
It remains to be seen whether the Supreme Court will come to his aid, but if it fails, Kidero’s political career is as good as done. He has little friends at ODM and Kenyans are tired with him, going by comments on social media.
The hashtags #KideroOut and #ReasonsKideroLostHisSeat were trending yesterday, and there were no kind words for the underfire governor.
Here are some of the tweets and memes.
What’s the difference between Kidero and Moyes? Specialists in failure! #ReasonsKideroLostHisSeat
