NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 15 – Migori Governor Okoth Obado is already in court where he is expected to face gun related charges.
He was arrested on Wednesday and locked up at the Gigiri police station after one of the three guns found at his Migori home was found to be unregistered.
Anti Corruption officials had on Tuesday found eight guns in his houses in Nairobi and Migori in an operation that was initially targetting documents in a graft probe facing the governor.
Seven of the guns are said to be registered and owners known but one is unregistered.
Obado will be facing charges weeks after he was freed on bond in a case in which he is accused of killing his lover Sharon Otieno and her unborn baby.
He has been active lately attending political meetings, often accompanying the Deputy President William Ruto who is seeking to make in-roads in Raila Odinga’s Nyanza backyard.
