Former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero has been picked up by EACC officers for interrogation over a corruption case he is facing.

Kidero was picked at his Muthaiga home after detectives raided on Thursday morning.

He later left with the officers to his Eldama Park office in Westlands.

Addressing journalists outside his home, Kidero said the move by the EACC detectives was pure harassment of his rights.

“We will not take this lying down. They are looking for evidence to arrest me. This in relation to the crimes in court. This is more than a month later,” he said.

Last month, the DPP Noordin Haji accused Kidero of receiving benefits of Sh10 million from Lodwar Wholesalers Limited on September 11, 2014, and Sh14 million on August 29, 2014.

He was also accused of committing the offence of conspiracy leading to loss of public funds amounting to Sh213 million for services not rendered when he served as a governor. Kidero denied the charges.

Hospitalizations and deaths of younger people are surging as the COVID-19 pandemic accelerates across Latin America and the Caribbean, Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Director Carissa Etienne said on Wednesday.

“Adults of all ages – including young people – are becoming seriously ill. Many of them are dying,” Etienne said at her daily press briefing as quoted in a PAHO release.

In Brazil, mortality rates doubled among those younger than 39, quadrupled among those in their 40s, and tripled for those in their 50s, between December 2020 and March 2021, she said.

“For much of the pandemic, our hospitals were filled with elderly COVID patients, many of whom had pre-existing conditions that made them more susceptible to severe disease,” Etienne said. “But look around intensive care units across our region today. You’ll see they’re filled not only with elderly patients, but also with younger people.”

Etienne urged hospitals in the region to increase the size of intensive care units (ICU) in anticipation that the trend will continue, while warning that expansion of ICUs cannot continue indefinitely.

As a result, she urged nations to double down on prevention measures such as lockdowns and facemasks.
