Okoth Obado Ruling Set For Today

Governor of Migori County Okoth Obado, who has been accused of murdering Sharon Otieno and her unborn baby, will know today if he will continue serving time at Industrial Area remand prison or be released on bail.
Judge Jessie Lessit will at 9am make her ruling on Okoth Obado and his other accused's bail applications.
The second term governor together with his personal assistant and Migori County clerk have spent more than a month in remand prison in connection with the murder of Sharon Otieno who has since been buried.
The governor was taken into custody on September 21. He also spent some days in Kenyatta National Hospital's private wing after falling ill in remand prison.
The first attempt at being freed on bail failed on September 27 after Jessie Lessit ruled that the safety of the witnesses could not be guaranteed with the governor roaming freely in Migori County. The judge also cited the volatile situation in Migori County for her ruling.
Cliff Ombeta who is representing the governor had earlier argued in court that there were no compelling reasons to keep holding the governor in custody since the prosecution couldn't prove that the governor would harm witnesses if freed.
