Kenya: Okoth Obado returns to work after a month in remand

The embattled Migori Governor Okoth Obado has reported to his office for the first time after spending more than a month in remand in Nairobi.

He arrived at his office Monday morning where he was welcomed by his jubilant staff and supporters.

The county chief later held a series of meetings with his senior officers who briefed him on the performance of their departments while he was away.

Some members of the public also got an opportunity to meet him and wish him well.

The governor’s office has been dormant since his arrest and charging with the murder of his lover and Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.

Mr Obado was released on bail on Wednesday by the High Court Judge Jessie Lessit.

Mr Obado was driven to his office from his rented house in Migori town.

This is after the bond terms barred him from setting foot on his palatial home in Rapogi which is less than 20 kilometres from the Homa Bay County border.

His personal effects were brought in from the Rapogi home immediately he arrived from Nairobi at the weekend.​
