Outgoing Governor Okoth Obado has had a rough day on 25th August 2022, after he attempted to make a speech in the swearing in ceremony of his successor. His successor, Ochilo Ayacko tried to calm the rowdy crowd to no avail.
According to a post by the star, a reputable news publisher, the chaotic crowd started throwing water bottles at the retired governor.
Obado, was among many other high-ranking guests that were invited to the swearing in ceremony that was held at Migori county stadium on Thursday.
The retired leader has had a hazy past with scandals of corruption and murder haunting him thus the negative public reaction to his presence at the ceremony. Despite the leader being free, it is quite clear that members of his county do not approve him as their leader – outgoing.
The rowdy crowd breached protocol that necessitated the intervention of MP Walter Owino, who did not calm the situation. If anything, the chaos got out of hand.

“I am asking with humility and love, even if you have problems with Obado respect this celebration. Obado please come and say goodbye to these people, you led them,” Owino said.
But the charged crowd continued yelling and shouting unprintable words forcing Ayacko to come and calm them.
“I beg you please and with utmost humility to give Obado time to talk, he is still our brother and kin. He has performed his transition duties smoothly and he has to speak,” Ayacko said.”
Chaos was ignited by Nyatike MP Tom Odege, Migori Woman Representative Fatuma Mohammed, Uriri MP Mark Nyamita, Suna Central MCA elect Samuel O’brien and South Kanyamkago MCA Graham Kagali when they attacked Obado, his administration of Migori County.
“Ayacko is inheriting a failed government from Obado. I can say without fear. We will join him in prayers as he saves our people from looters and liberates Migori from thieves, we will back Ayacko,” Odege said.”
