The Kibera law court has on today released Migori Governor Okoth Obado on bail. This is after dismissing an application to detain him pending conclusion of a firearms possession investigation.
The court freed Mr Obado on a Sh500,000 bond with surety of similar amount or Sh200, 000 cash bail. He was ordered not to interfere with ongoing investigations.
The state wanted him detained for 15 days.
He was arrested on Wednesday after police said they found 8 firearms after raiding his Nairobi and Migori homes.
