Court grants Obado Sh8.7m cash bail, bars him from office


Migori Governor Okoth Obado, who is facing corruption charges, has been freed on Sh8.7 million cash bail or an alternative Sh20 million bond.

On Monday, Chief Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi of the Milimani Anti-corruption Court, also barred Mr Obado from accessing his office pending the conclusion of the trial.

The officer investigating the case was directed to escort him to pick personal stuff from his office.

The court also prohibited the governor from travelling outside country.

Governor Obado and his four children are accused of stealing money amounting to millions of shillings from public coffers.

His ten co-accused were also freed on different bail terms of between Sh2 million and Sh8.2 million.

They were barred from accessing county government offices.

All the accused were warned against interfering with State witnesses.
