Migori Governor Okoth Obado will remain in remand prison until October 24 when the court rules on his bail application.

High Court Judge Jessy Lessit said she would deliver a ruling on whether Obado and his co-accused will be granted bail or not after 12 days.

The court gave out the date after hearing submissions from parties in the case.

The prosecution insisted that Obado and his co-accused Michael Oyamo and Caspal Obiero should not be released on bail.

This is Obado’s second attempt at securing bail in the Sharon Otieno murder case.

On October 8, the trio pleaded not guilty to the murder of 26-year-old Sharon Otieno.

The trio are also facing a fresh count of murder after the court allowed the prosecution to amend the charge sheet to include that of Sharon Otieno’s baby.
