Moments after Migori Governor Okoth Obado and his family were released on bond ODM has now resolved to impeach him.
In a special meeting called by the national secretariat, 37 out of 41 Members of County Assembly passed a resolution to impeach the under fire governor.
In a tweet through their twitter handle, ODM said that the court’s decision to bar him from executing his duties at his office informed the decision to execute an impeachment process.
The party also said that his Deputy will take over from him soon after he gets ousted from his position.
“Due to corruption charges levelled against Governor Okoth Obado & the decision by the court to bar him from accessing his office, the party in consultations with County MCAs has resolved to have a motion of impeachment against the governor initiated immediately & have the Dep. Governor take over.” said ODM on twitter.
