Migori Governor files petition to be released on bail for medical reasons


Migori Governor Okoth Obado has recently filed an application at the High Court that states he wants to be released on bail due to some medical reasons.

The Migori Governor was admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital the previous Tuesday after he was detained at the Industrial Area Prison because of Sharon Otieno’s murder case.

In his application, the governor says he has a severe back problem on the lumbar spine which started affecting him in 2013 and his condition has become worse since his detention.

His lawyer Roggers Sagana says even though he was admitted to the Kenyatta National hospital, his condition has not improved.

The prosecution is however opposed to Obado’s release on bail, citing security concerns for witnesses.

Obado is charged alongside his aides and a former Migori County Assembly Member over the murder of Sharon who was his lover.
