Governor Obado moves back to court, makes 2 special requests

Migori Governor Okoth Obado has moved back to court with two special requests on his bail terms.

Reports reaching indicate that Governor Obado has asked for a review of terms of his bail in slain Sharon Otieno’s case.

In a new application he has filed in Court, Obado is asking the court to lift the ban that restricted him from getting 20 kilometers close to Homa Bay County.

In the application, Okoth wants the court to give him back his passport, which is part of the documents he surrender to the court when he was released on bail.

Released on bail

On October 24 2018, Governor Obado was released on Sh5 million cash bail in the murder case of Sharon Otieno who was his lover and her unborn child.

In the ruling made by Justice Jessie Lesiit, Obado was ordered to surrender all his travel documents and not go 20 kilometers close to the boarder of Homa Bay County, where Sharon Otieno’s body was found. He was also restricted from getting into contact with any of the witnesses and talking about the case in public.

Justice Lesiit ordered the Governor to report to the Registrar of the High Court once every month and to attend all court sessions.

His co-accused Michael Oyamo who was his personal assistant and Caspal Obiero a clerk at Migori County were denied bail.

Obado and his two co-accused had stayed behind bars for slightly more than a month.
