The court has released Governor Okoth Obado of Migori County on a cash bail of Ksh. 8.7 Million, and further barred from accessing Migori county offices.
Obado had been arrested alongside his four children ( Dan Achola, Scarlet Susan, Jerry Zachary and Evelyne Odhiambo) and six other associates who were all detained at various police stations in Nairobi.
Okoth Obado was accused by the DPP of embezzlement of Ksh. 73.4 Million from county coffers.
ODM is now inviting all ODM members in Migori county assembly to attend a meeting which is likely to be consultative on who ought to take over as the Governor, bearing in mind that Obado is less likely to be in charge of Migori just like former Kiambu Governor Waititu was barred due to corruption allegations.
