This is exactly why Judge JESSIE LESSIT granted OKOTH OBADO a Sh5 million bail-This judge really understands the law

Thursday October 25, 2018-Barely a day after Migori Governor Okoth Obado was released from prison on a Sh5 million bail over the  chilling murder of his lover, Sharon Otieno, It has now emerged that the prosecutor failed to directly link the county chief to the gruesome murder of his seven-month pregnant ex-lover.

While ruling on the weighty matter of public interest at the Milimani Law Courts, the non-nonsense High Court Judge, Jessie Lessit, literally sent the prosecutor back to the drawing board when she said there was no substantive evidence yet to put the first accused at the crime scene.

  “Although the court could not make conclusive findings of the evidence presented, I find there is only circumstantial evidence linking the first accused to the crime.”

 “It would therefore be dangerous to deny him bail based on these kind of evidence,” Lessit ruled.

The judge concurred with Obado's lawyer, Cliff Ombeta, who had argued during bail hearing that none of the witnesses presented by the prosecutor directly linked his client to the murder or even mentioned his client in relation to the heinous crime.
