Governor Obado has been in constant trouble. He is been jumping from one frying pan to the next. He is just surviving and still healing from the bruises.
Governor Obado has been in Industrial Area Remand Prisons for over a month in the alleged connection to the murder case of his late girl friend Sharon and her unborn child. Obado was granted a 5 million bail but with tough conditions to live with to guarantee his freedom till next case hearing.
Immediately the governor came out the corruption allegations came looming. Obado is believed to own a multi-million casino in Australia. Also he is alleged to have registered a number of companies under his family members name.
Obado now wants to be protected.
Obado asked Ruto to guard him against “crocodiles”. He promised to work with the DP to spur development.
“I seek permission from the people of MIgori to be able to walk with Ruto,” he said.
Ruto welcomed the opportunity to work with Obado. They boarded the same helicopter to Nairobi after the function.
“Is there a problem if I worked with governor Okoth Obado? I will not mind what will be said of our closeness,” he said.
Migori governor Okoth Obado has also urged Kenyans to pray for him, saying “there is a crocodile out to eat him alive”.
He said there are people who are forcing him into a crocodile’s jaws.
“There is this other story doing rounds about crocodiles which are not even in the Bible. Some people are pushing me into the crocodile’s mouth,” Obado said.
“I want you to pray for me, especially church leaders, so that the crocodile does not eat me up.”
He was speaking at Kendege Technical Training Institute on Saturday when he hosted Deputy President William Ruto.
The DP officially opened the Sh300 million college.
Talking about the same “crocodile”, Kuria East MP Marwa Kitayama said Kenyans do not want to hear the crocodile talk (in reference to ODM leader Raila Odinga’s analogy of failed political journey to Canaan).
Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro said Central region is ready to back Ruto for the top seat in 2022.
“Let no one fool you. Central region belongs to the DP. We shall walk with you all the way. What we don’t want to hear are these mamba (crocodile) stories,” he said.
