While testifying, Mr Momanyi narrated how he faked medical records for Mr Obado's co-accused and personal assistant Michael Oyamo.

He presented copies of the forged medical records in court.  

After being found yesterday, Mr Cliff Momanyi, who works at Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital, said his life is in danger and demanded he be put under witness protection.

Through his advocate, family and colleagues, he said he feels threatened given the weighty evidence he gave in court.

His family said that after leaving Nairobi for his home in Kisii on Wednesday, the clinical officer switched off his phone because he did not want his whereabouts to be known. This is because he feared for his life.
