Migori Governor Okoth Obado is admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital after he reportedly fell sick while at the Industrial Area Remand Prison.
Governor Obado has been admitted at the KNH private wing.
He is reported to have complained of severe stomachache when he was taken to the hospital,
The Migori governor has been in remand since last week when he was charged with the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
On Thursday, September 27, High Court judge Jessie Lessit ruled that Governor Obado be detained until October 8, 2018 when his bail application will be reconsidered together with that of his co-accused.
The government has since denied reports that Migori Governor Okoth Obado is being accorded preferential treatment at Industrial Area Remand Prison.
In a statement sent to newsrooms on Monday, Prisons Commissioner General Isaiah Osugo said Governor Obado is being treated like any other inmate awaiting trial.
