Supreme Court re-instates Obado as Migori governor
08 April 2014, 17:11
Nairobi - The Supreme Court has re-instated Migori Governor Okoth Obado to office until April 23 when a case contesting his removal from office is heard.
Obado was declared unconstitutionally fit to hold office due to his acrimonious election to office in the March 2013 elections.
He quickly moved to the Supreme Court to get further interpretation of his removal and having been granted a hearing on Tuesday, it has gone positively.
Judge Mohammed Ibrahim ruled that there was a valid case from Obado and that a ruling would be made by Wednesday April 23.
In the case, he is challenging the Court of Appeal’s ruling that denounced him
as the successful gubernatorial election outcome candidate for Migori County.
