New details emerge as Government goes after Obado’s palatial home

Just weeks after making peace with his party leader Raila Odinga, and sponsor party ODM embattled Migori Governor Zachary Okoth Obado is once again under fire.

The County boss is in trouble as Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officials are targeting a multi-million mansion linked to him in a graft case.

Reports indicate that the commission is seeking to have the 34.5 Million property located in Loresho Nairobi County and registered under his proxy Jared Oluoch Kwaga frozen for another six months.

Obado has been in and out of the Courts on accusations of among others corruption and embezzlement of County resources a case still continuing with 2 billion shillings sought after.

Reports further indicate that the money used to purchase the property was part of the proceeds of the 2 billion in question sent to the Governor’s friends, allies, and Kwaga.

The court listed Kwaga’s beneficiaries as his brothers Patroba Ochanda and Joram Opala, Mother Penena Otago, Sister-in-law Christine Onyango as well as Christine Akinyi, Kwaga’s spouse.

Also roped into the case were Governor Obado’s two sons Dan Achola and Jerry Zachary and the two Landcruiser cars they own for having been purchased from the proceeds of crime.

The sleuths have cast their nets wider, going as far as the UK and Australia where the Governor’s children were learning, and received monies with firms associated with the County chief.

“The Commission, due to the new discovery, requires more time to further investigate the respondents and their dealings or collusion with a view of tracing the process of illicit wealth gained from fraudulent transactions,” stated an EACC investigator.

They also seek to have the two cars frozen for at least as investigations into the cases continue.
