"I have decided to withdraw the petition. My lawyers have already sent a letter to Mr Obado's lawyers communicating my intention. The same letter has been copied to the Court of Appeal," Ochillo told a local newspaper. This was the aftermath of reconciliation between the two former political rivals brokered by Nasa leader Raila Odinga. The two politicians, who had attended the burial of Migori Senator Ben Oluoch at Kanyimach village, appeared to have been taken by surprise when Raila asked them to bury the hatchet. Obado told Raila that he would only reconcile with Ayacko if his rival publicly declared he would withdraw his court case.
