I call upon our politicians and the media to avoid medieval punishments and proclamations so that our agencies that are charged with investigation are given ample time to do their job. Finally, I want to say that I'm ready and willing whenever I will be called upon to give further statements so that the real perpetrators can be brought to book. I also want to urge the people of Migori County to stay calm and maintain peace because I know my husband is innocent and together in prayers, we shall succeed in this,” reads Part of Obado’s Statement.
