Governor OKOTH OBADO is not receiving any special at Industrial Area Prison - He is a prisoner like any other and is treated like one - MATIANGI


Tuesday October 2, 2018 - Interior Coordination Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiangi, has dismissed claims that Migori County Governor, Okoth Obado, is living like a king at Industrial Area Remand Prison.

Over the weekend, a local daily reported that Mr. Obado, who is facing murder charges over the death of his lover, Sharon Otieno, is being given VIP treatment at Industrial Area prison.

But speaking on Monday, Matiangi dismissed these claims and said Obado is being treated like any other criminal in jail.

"Our officers have been executing their duties in accordance to the law.”

“There is no such discrimination in our prisons.”

"Being a capital offender, he is being treated as such until he proved his innocence.”

“Let's not rely on propaganda.”

“At lest they can visit and ascertain our position," Matiangi said.

Matiangi’s sentiments were echoed by prison boss, Isaiah Osugo, who dismissed claims that Obado is receiving special treatment at Industrial Area Prison in Nairobi.
