I’m hurt but have accepted my fate: Obado

Admittedly resigned to fate yet steely, composed and raring to get out!

This is the mood at Kenyatta National Hospitals Side Room B in Ward 6A where an important guest of state, Migori Governor Okoth Obado, is receiving treatment ahead of court appearance on Monday.

When we walked in to the ward, the governor feigned a smile as he pulled himself up the six by four bed where he is chained and wryly exclaimed: “This is how it is now. And I have accepted it.”

The dimly lit hospital room has now become Obado’s new home since Wednesday morning when he fell ill.

Next to the bed was a pair of red slippers and knee height silver metallic shelve holding plates with leftovers served during the day.

“They brought me some ugali, vegetables and oranges. I liked the oranges. Dinner was served around 4pm,” he said.

A dry piece of ugali and orange peels were on the white plates. And in another set of plates, a white tea cup perched waiting to be cleared.

He said breakfast is served at around 9am. “They bring tea and some few slices of bread. But I am comfortable with it,” Obado said. A bowl of grapes, a plastic cup, a blue flask, toiletries, a shaving machine and a few items rest on the shelve top that is now the full storeroom of the governor.

“I am happy that my family is standing with me and I thank them so much,” he said.

Though ill, he was more pained by the tarnishing of his image for what he claims he did not do; murder his girlfriend Sharon Otieno. Police have charged the Governor with the murder of Ms Otieno, a 26-year-old student at Rongo University.

“I have accepted the circumstances I am in and I am willing to deal with them. My spirit is still strong. I will continue to serve my people (of Migori) and I hope this will end soon,” Obado said.

When he arrived at KNH on Wednesday morning after being taken ill at the Industrial Area prison, he was first admitted to the private wing before he was moved to the General Ward on Thursday.

“It has been blown beyond what it should have been. As a normal human being I am hurt and it is a painful experience that you cannot wish on anyone,” said Obado.

Obado’s left hand is handcuffed to the frame of the bed and during the interview he was using his right hand to emphasize points.

Lying on the bed covered with a blue mosquito net, Obado said it is unfortunate that people have worked hard to ‘set me against the masses and they will fail.’

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

President Uhuru Kenyatta has said Kenyans on Twitter were too hostile to him that is why he left.

Speaking during the launch of the the drive for the signatures for the Building Bridges Initiative, President Uhuru Kenyatta said he would spend so much time on Twitter, going through what people were saying and all he would see were abuses which would get to him.

He said he has been listening to people and talks to them before making decisions, but going to Twitter to see what people were saying was not a pleasant experience for him. He now says he would rather spend time with his wife in the evening before sleeping and wake up to go to work.

Mimi hata huko Twitter, mimi niliondoka huko, nikaona hio kitu ni bure ni matusi tu, unakaa hapo unasoma, haulali, halafu unapiga simu, unaona vile huyo mtu amenitusi, afadhali nilale bana, nipige story na mama kidogo hapo, nilale, niamke, niende kazi, dunia iendelee,” he said.

Uhuru left Twitter in 2018 . He was most followed leader in Sub-Saharan Africa on Twitter with more than three million followers.

CCTV footage has emerged showing the moment a man stole a laptop from a house in a city flat.

The footage, captured last week, shows the unidentified male masquerading as a tenant of the flat and waiting as a tenant opens the gate door before he follows her in.

The man then starts going around the flat looking for any unlocked doors.

The suspect is seen moving floor after floor until he finally finds an unlocked door.

He then gets in and hastily makes away with a bag with what is understood to be a laptop.

Mr Muriithi, the landlord of Mufu Heights, which is located along Mirema Road in Nairobi, suspects that the man captured on CCTV could be working for a moving company.

Spotted in the apartment

He said that it was the second time the man had been spotted in the apartment. In the first incident, a tenant lost a wristwatch.

“We suspect that he works for a moving company and he helped a tenant to either move in or out and he came back and surveyed the building sometime in September. He has returned and a tenant has lost a laptop,” Mr Mureithi said.

He added that the victim had left the house without locking the door because his wife had forgotten her keys in the house.
