Detectives from the anti-graft agency on Tuesday raided the homes of Governor Okoth Obado in Migori and Nairobi.

The early morning raid by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission  was in search of documents and material to aid in an ongoing probe on corruption allegations against him.

The Migori Governor is accused of siphoning Sh2 billion of the county cash through bank accounts registered by his family members.

“The commission received credible information that a few persons well known to be proxies of the governor, registered several companies for the purpose of fraudulent acquisition of public funds through fictitious contracts,” says EACC.
