Migori Governor Okoth Obado was arrested over the gruesome murder of his pregnant girlfriend Rongo University student Sharon Otieno who was 26 years old but was freed on Sh 5 million bail after more than a month in custody. This saw his movements tightly regulated by the court, which also slapped him with a gag order prohibiting him from mentioning Sharon’s name.

The county chief, however, spent another night in remand as he was unable to process his bail terms. His lawyer said they were unable to handle it before close of business. Lady Justice Jessie Lessit’s decision meant the governor will be restricted to his Migori backyard, with the risk of being sent back to detention if he violates an order not to travel outside a 20-kilometre radius of his home.

“The court will be at liberty to cancel his bail terms if it is notified that the accused person has breached any of the conditions imposed,” ruled Justice Lessit.

Five other suspects including Mr Obado’s personal assistant Michael Oyamo, bodyguard Elvis Omondi and a clerk in the county Caspal Obiero were also arrested over the gruesome murder that Nation journalist Barack Oduor escaped by a whisker.

Whereas the governor was lucky to be released pending trial, his co-accused were denied bail.

Do you think it was wise for the senator to publicly air out his opinion about his support of Obado?
