Christopher Mogere Obure (born 29 September 1943)[1] is a Kenyan politician. He belongs to the Jubilee Party and was elected to represent the Bobasi Constituency in the National Assembly of Kenya in the December 2007 parliamentary election. He was born in Boigesa Village on September 29, 1943, in the then larger Bobasi Machoge Constituency which has since been split into Bobasi and Bomachoge Constituencies. He worked for Bata Shoe Company and Kenya Breweries Limited (now East Africa Breweries) before joining politics.[2] He was the Minister of Public Works in the Government of National Unity. He was the first Senator of Kisii County.[3] Obure is also well remembered as the first non-Luo player to be recruited in Gor Mahia F.C, and was among the squad which played during the club's inaugural season in 1968 and 1969.[4]
