Okoth Obado, the embattled governor of Migori, has gotten too political. He did this when his longtime partner announced her unflinching support for Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate for the Azimio party, rather than William Ruto, the candidate Obado is endorsing.
Hellen Obado claimed in an interview that her husband left her after she refused to support Ruto for president.
She mentioned that Obado’s withdrawal of support for Raila’s State House bid has made it harder for her to run for the Migori Woman Representative seat.
Hellen claims that the day she chose to support Raila against her husband’s wishes was the beginning of her problems since Obado began to ignore her campaigns and since that day, her life has never been the same.
She begged Migori voters to show forgiveness and choose her as the next Woman Representative for Migori in the August election.
Help me get this seat, please, my countrymen. You are aware of how much I contributed to Obado’s election as Migori’s first governor. He sadly abandoned me on my own. Hellen Obado pleaded with voters, “He doesn’t want to stand with me.
“Raila Odinga is running for president, yet he has my support on the ballot, even if I’m running for the Woman Rep position. She continued, “That part I know.
One of Ruto’s lieutenants in the area is Obado, who is attempting to unseat Raila Odinga in Luo Nyanza.
