Migori Governor Okoth Obado denied bail


Migori Governor Okoth Obado will have to wait until October 8 to know whether the court can grant him bail or not.

High Court Judge Justice Lessit has stated that the court could not rule on his bail before all witness statements are in court.

Obado has been in police custody since Friday, September 21 when he was arrested with the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.

The prosecution had argued that Obado should be denied bail on grounds that he might interfere with witnesses based on his status.

Investigations on the case are still ongoing and that investigators would be proceeding back to Migori County offices for further investigations which include interrogating Obado’s close family members, and county employees.

The officer had indicated that in the view of the intricate relationship between Obado and confessions recorded by some suspects, it would be extremely dangerous to release the accused on bail adding that he is a serious danger to the society and witnesses that may appear in the matter.
