"Our investigation established that the governor, in abuse of his position and in conflict of interest, amassed assets valued at Sh73,474,376 procured with proceeds of contracts with the County Government of Migori which were fictitious or otherwise procured irregularly,” said the commission through Mr Simiyu.
The commission says out of the total amount, sh 38 milion was cashed into Obado's offspring account to be used as tuition fee as well as other taking care of personal ukeeps. Another share was used to purchase two luxurious land cruisers in the name of his little daughter.
So far, the agency has traced the remaining amount sh34 was injected into Kenya power pension fund used to buy Loresho Ridge house in Lavington. The rentals have a lease agreement but the rent is being wired to Obado's daughter Everlyne.
