Okoth Obado’s murder case is still underway. The Governor was accused of the murder of a University student, Sharon Otieno who was murdered and left in a thicket. Sharon was pregnant at the time of the murder. Obado was accused of the murder since he had a romantic relationship with the 26-year-old.
It was a dull moment for Sharon Otieno’s mother today in court whereby Justice Jesse Lesiit was ruling whether or not to recuse herself from the case, involving Migori Governor, Okoth Obado. She refused to recuse herself and as she read her statement, the mother was overcome by emotions and could not hold back her tears.
“It is clear from the content in the statement of Barack Oduor (Nation journalist who had been abducted), that there is no evidence that I lured Sharon Beryl Otieno as deposed by the investigating officer.
“The deposition that I lured the deceased is a figment of his imagination,” the judge read.
It was then that Sharon’s mother was helped up and taken out of the court.

Obviously Obado will be given some lenient sentence like probation if at all found guilty. So ladies let’s mess with common mwananchi so just incase we die our family gets justice for us. I.e Obado should still be in jail like Jowie & Naphtali not out on bail.
