Migori Governor Okoth Obado is set to be impeached as per the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party resolutions owing to his graft cases.
The Party Chairman and Suba MP John Mbadi says 37 out of 41 Members of County Assembly (MCA’s) have agreed to impeach the governor.
Ther governor has over the past few years been dogged by allegations of graft, murder and mismanagement.
In 2018, the governor was accused of killing Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
Recently, the murder suspect and some of his family members were arrested and arraigned in court over theft of Sh74 million from the county government coffers.
EACC has been investigating the Migori county boss for following reports that he stole public funds through companies registered by his relatives.
According to the DPP, the governor indirectly received Sh73.4 million from companies that traded with the devolved government during his first term in office.
Mr Haji said the four children separately received Sh34.5 million from Mr Obado’s companies and three brothers, who acted as proxies in some firms the county boss owned.
“Public money was lost through connivance of the governor and the business entities in payments made for performance of contracts,” Mr Haji said in a statement.
Obado and his kids spent three days in police cells pending bail which was given on Monday 31st August 2020.
What shocked Kenyans is the short time they raised the Sh45 million cash bail.
The governor’s children investigated by EACC are Susan Scarlet, Jerry Zachary, Evelyn Adhiambo and Dan Achola Okoth.
