The governor, when he appeared before Justice Jessie Lessit on Monday, denied killing Rongo university student Sharon Otieno. The charge is that together with others not before court, he murdered Sharon at Owado area in Rachuonyo sub-county, between September 3 to September 4.

The governor was represented by lawyers Nicholas Ombija, Evans Ondieki, Rogers Sagana, and Cliff Ombeta.

He filed an application to be released on bail but Justice Lessit directed that the matter be heard on Tuesday afternoon.

Obado spent three ‘humbling’ nights at the Gigiri police cells following his arrest last Friday.

There was no VIP treatment for the embattled governor while in custody.
