Obado's Plan For Presidential Bid Cut Short As Court Orders Him To Do This, Risks Life Sentence

Governor Obado's plan to vie for Presidency was cut short today after court ordered him to present himself on 12th July 2021 for the ongoing of his murder case association.

Migori Governor Okoth Obado's motion to defer the hearing of a criminal case in which he is suspected of aiding and abetting the murder of a pregnant university student, Ms Sharon Otieno, was denied by the High Court.

Mr Obado had stated that he would be unable to attend the trial in Nairobi due of Covid-19 restrictions in the Nyanza region.

However, Justice Cecilia Githua has ordered that the case be heard under a tent outside the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi from July 12 to 15.

If he will be rendered to be associated with the murder of Sharon Otieno and her unborn baby, he will face a life sentence.

The number of attendees will be restricted to the accused persons, their lawyers, prosecutors, lawyers for the victim's family and Sharon's immediate relatives.
