The Migori County Governor Okoth Obado today accompanied Deputy President William Ruto to Awendo and Uriri towns. Apart from Obado, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader was also accompanied by other politicians, especially Members of County Assemblies from Rift Valley. Shortly after the political event, Governor Obado took to his social media accounts and updated Kenyans about it.

“I joined Deputy President Dr William Ruto and other leaders at a fundraiser for the construction of Awendo Central SDA Church. We also held a consultative meeting with Migori County grassroot leaders at the Sony Sugar Complex in Awendo Constituency. Later, we engaged wananchi at Awendo, Uriri and Rapogi towns. Thank you and may God bless you all,” Okoth Obado posted on his official Facebook page.

The Migori County boss is believed to have joined hands with Deputy President William Ruto in the race to State House ahead of the coming 2022 general elections. Kenyans have, however, ganged up against Okoth Obado with most people accusing him of betraying the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga. Others told him that, owing to his questionable character after the murder of university student who was his lover, UDA is where he belongs.

Sharon had been found dead a few years ago as the DCI reports pointed fingers at the governor. Some Kenyans have also urged Obado to return to the former Prime Minister in order to avoid being politically irrelevant like most politicians who have ever followed the path he is currently taking. They argued that he has committed a political suicide by joining hands with the second in command who also has pending court cases filed against him. Below are some of the reactions from social media users:

Teddy: Are you even ashamed of taking Ruto to a company which when you were the head of the company and Ruto as Agriculture minister, you ensured that the company would never be the same again. I now believe that dead people don't see things really. Sharon, Musando, Muteshi, Yebei and Kenei. You've both let me down.

Njoroge: Birds of the same feathers flock together. You sent Sharon deep under the ground. Ruto sent Kenei, Juma and others deep under the ground. You stole our funds to buy your daughter a house in Kitusuru and you grabbed lands in Nyatike Gold mine. Ruto stole Arror and Kimwarer, now the files for the case are no where to be seen at the Court. He grabbed Langatta primary land. I hate you more than how you murdered Sharon Otieno.
