The High Court has released Migori governor Okoth Obado on Sh5million cash bail.
The court ordered Obado to provide two sureties of the same amount.
Justice Lesiit’s also insisted that Obado will not be able to travel outside the country, to discharge his duties as county boss.
“He must deposit his travel documents including passports,” Justice Jessie Lessit said when she made the ruling on Wednesday morning.
Lessit also ordered Obado not to intimidate parents or siblings of the deceased Sharon Otieno.
Obado has been in remand at the Industrial Area prison for 33 days after his arrest on September 21 in connection with the murder of Rongo university student.
Lessit had declined Obado’s first application for bail on September 27.
She said that uncertainty of the safety of witnesses in the murder trial led to the denial of bail.
Obado is facing two murder charges alongside his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and County Clerk Caspal Obiero.
The second charge is that of killing Sharon’s unborn child.
