Okoth Obado taken to hospital after falling ill
Migori Governor Okoth Obado was taken to the hospital Wednesday after becoming ill in remand.
Mr Obado was admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital’s private wing at around 12pm, acting Clinical Services Director Dr Peter Masinde confirmed.
“He is sick, but not in critical condition,” Dr Masinde said, adding that he is not allowed to divulge details of what he governor is from.
He has been in police custody at the Industrial Area Remand Prison in Nairobi since last week after he was charged with the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
Last week, a judge rejected his application to be released on bond.
Justice Jessie Lessit rejected the application, saying the court was yet to see the witness statements and documentary evidence to be used in the case to make a determination as to whether it was okay to free him on bond.
