How Obado Built a Ksh 100 Million House Without Paying a Coin

As of 2018, detectives operating within the lines of Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) tried to identify how the Migori Governor Obado must have constructed a Ksh100 million palatial home without paying any amount to the constructor.

The governor expressed optimistic fearlessness in coming up with patterns that allow for him to own a palatial home without paying a single coin.

In line with EACC reports, the multi-million house was constructed by Mbingo Enterprises which is alleged to be owned by one of Obado's accomplices.

The investigation team also revealed that the Migori governor Zacharia Okoth Obado had the palatial home nestled on top of stretching acres of Uriri.

"The investigation team has also verified that the governor Migori county, Zacharia Okoth Obado, has a newly built palatial home estimated to be worth more than Ksh100 million located at Uriri," the anti-graft agency was quoted saying.

Acute hindsight reveals that the Migori governor has got a handle in amassing wealth above and beyond his legitimate sources of wealth. This, together with the other controversies hovering on top of his name, has proven that the governor is experiencing a deep drive of amassing wealth.

On August 11, 2019, the Migori county officials demonstrated an ethical breakdown when they displayed an irregular purchase of furniture which amounted to Ksh 20m. The furniture was to embellish the spaces of the Obado's magnificent palatial home.

Their arrest came after their pact had managed to flout procurement procedures during the purchase of furniture to be used in the governor's residence. Their flouting intentions allowed for them to award a tender to an unmerited company.

After being arrested for the murder of Sharon Belyne Otieno, a student at the university of Rongo, it was reported that through Governor Obado, 30 companies were desperately formed in an attempt to pocket Ksh2.5 billion in fictitious deals and contracts.
