Date Set for Hearing of Sharon Otieno Murder Case, 30 Witnesses Lined Up Against Okoth Obado

Share

The hearing of Sharon Otieno’s murder case in which Migori governor Okoth Obado is a prime suspect has been scheduled for December 2 and December 3 of this year.

Thirty witnesses are expected to testify against the county boss who is charged alongside his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and Casper Obiero, a clerk in Migori County.

The prosecution team reportedly said there are two protected witnesses.

The three accused denied killing the Rongo University student and her unborn baby on the night of September 3 and 4 last year, at Owade in Rachuonyo Sub-county, Homa Bay County.

Governor Obado was released after depositing a cash bail of Sh5 million and two sureties of Sh5 million each.

Mr Obiero and Mr Oyamo had initially been denied bail by Justice Lesiit after ruling that releasing them was likely to disturb public order and peace.

But the accused appealed against the ruling and were ordered to deposit Sh1 million each or an alternative bond of Sh2 million each.

While releasing the two, Justices Daniel Musinga, Mohamed Warsame, and Otieno Odek said if peace and order have continued to prevail in the county since the release of Mr Obado on bail, they did not see why the same would be disturbed by the release of the appellants.
