Migori Governor Okoth Obado

Migori Governor Okoth Obado, his daughter and brother have been barred by the anti-Corruption Court from dealing with a property worth Ksh34 million in Loresho, Nairobi for six months.

Obado, Everlyne Odhiambo and Peter Kwaga were barred from selling the house after EACC claimed the property on LR NO 21080/38 was bought through proceeds of crimes.
