Governor Obado stopped from entering his luxurious home

1

Even after Migori Governor Okoth Obado’s release on bail, he is still facing challenges after he was blocked from entering his private home.

Judge Jessie Lesiit ordered that Obado should not go within 20km of Homa Bay-Migori boundary.

This is where the murder of Sharon Otieno, which he is accused of, took place.

His home in Rapogi is among the places that fall within the restricted area.

Governor Obado was on Wednesday morning freed on cash bail at the Milimani Law Courts.

The Migori governor was directed by the High Court to pay Ksh5 million bail with two sureties of the same.

During the ruling, High Court Judge Jessie Lesiit issued other conditions to be complied with by Obado failure to which the bail would be canceled.

Governor Obado is to surrender his travel documents in court, that is his Kenyan, East African and diplomatic passports.

This means that Obado may not be able to travel outside the country to discharge his duties as Migori County senior most executive.

The court also ordered that Obado should not go within 20km of Homa Bay-Migori boundary.

This is where the murder of Sharon Otieno, which he is accused of, took place.

Obado’s co-accused Michael Oyamo (personal assistant) and Migori County Clerk Caspal Obiero will remain in custody after being denied bail.

Judge Lesiit ruled that the release of Oyamo and Obiero would cause fear and anxiety among members of the public.

She also cited security concerns as part of the reasons why the two will remain at the Industrial Area Remand Prison.
