The family of the late Sharon Otieno will have to wait a little bit longer to finally know the truth on who really had a hand in the gruesome murder of their daughter.
This comes in the wake of the office of the Director of Public Prosecution’s decision to drop conspiracy to murder charges against Migori Governor Okoth Obado.
The State dropped the charges against Obado due to what it termed as Lack of Sufficient Evidence.
Sharon Otieno’s family through Lawyer George Wajackoya wrote to the DPP protesting the decision by his office to drop a conspiracy to murder charge against Migori Governor Okoth Obado.
The family argued that the decision was suspicious and as such wanted it quashed.
This comes even as Okoth Obado Trial failed to start after the Migori Governor filed an application seeking to have Sharon Otieno family Lawyers removed from the case. Obado argued that the case should be Prosecuted by the state & not family lawyers.
After his arrest in connection to the murder last year, Governor Obado was released on a Ksh.5 million cash bail in October and with it came strict bail terms which were later reviewed.
His co-accused Michael Oyamo and Caspal Obiero were however denied bail only to later get one after appealing at the Court of appeal. They would later file an application seeking to have Justice Jessie Lessit recuse herself from hearing their case.
The body of the late Sharon Otieno was found near Kodera Forest in Homa Bay County after she went missing on September 3rd last year.
