Why I will skip Raila’s Friday visit in Awendo- Obado

The moment

By MN Reporter

Migori governor Okoth Obado will skip Friday tour of ODM leader Raila Odinga in Awendo constituency to officially open a college.

Raila will be hosted by Awendo MP Walter Owino to official open the construction of Awendo Kenya Medical Training College.

On Thursday, Obado told the press he will skip the function because his legs are tied.

“I welcome him (Raila) to Awendo as he will bring development where our children will go to school, but I won’t be there,” Obado said.

He said that “because my legs have been tied and I should not be travelling far,” he will skip the function.

His statement is in reference to bond terms issued by justice Jessie Lessit over the murder charges of his girlfriend, former Rongo University student Sharon Otieno and their un-born child which restricts him from going anywhere within 20 kilometer radius of Homa Bay county where Otieno resides.

“I welcome him, but my legs are tied. I hope that they will help pray for me that these ropes that have tied me are loosened,” he said.
