Migori Governor Okoth Obado’s fate lies in a decision by the court which is set to make a ruling on his bail application today.

The governor who was charged with the murder of Rongo University Student Sharon Otieno has been in remand for the last two weeks.

Obado will be leaving for the court from the Kenyatta National Hospital where he was admitted last week over stomach issues.

His lawyer, Evans Ondieki told reporters that the Migori county boss had not fully recovered and would be spending his Sunday, October 7 evening in hospital.

Justice Jessie Lesiit , late last month suspended the bail application until witness statements and more evidence was provided to all parties for the Monday, October 8 case.

The governor, his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and Caspel Obiero, a clerk at the Migori County Assembly whose cases are pending consolidation are expected in court together.

Last week on Friday, Obado made a fresh application to have his  bail reviewed citing  health concerns.
