, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 12 – Migori Governor Okoth Obado will remain in incarceration until Wednesday next week when the court will rule on his second bail application.
Lady Justice Jessie Lessit of the Criminal Division of the High Court gave the orders Friday evening when Obado appeared alongside his aides Michael Oyamo and Caspal Obiero with whom he is standing murder trial over the killing of a Rongo University student.
While issuing the direction Lady Justice Lessit insisted Wednesday was the earliest she could have the ruling ready despite a plea for an earlier date by defence lawyers.
