(KDRTV) – Embattled Migori Governor Okoth Obado can breathe a sigh of relief (at least for now) after the county assembly deferred his impeachment motion.

Migori County Assembly speaker Boaz Okoth told the media that he was forced to defer the tabling of the motion over COVID-19.

“There was anxiety so I saw it better to push it. The Covid-19 regulations in the assembly were also not followed,” the speaker said.

There was tension in Migori ahead of the opening of the assembly which had been on a one month recess. Armed police officers patrolled the town from morning.

At the Assembly, journalists and MCAs flouted COVID-19 social distancing rules as they attempted to get a glimpse of what was happening. However, it was an anticlimax as the session lasted less than five minutes. The only business conducted was reopening of the assembly and a message from the speaker.

The speaker later said that journalists had been misled by people from Nairobi.

“The motion will not come today, that is a process. We believe the heavy contingent of police officers and media in the assembly is because they have been misled from Nairobi,” Okoth said.

Obado’s impeachment has caused political tension in Migori with at least half of ODM lawmakers said to be opposed to the motion.
