Kenya: Okoth Obado back in court over Sharon Otieno murder

Migori Governor Okoth Obado, who is accused of murdering his pregnant girlfriend Sharon Otieno, on Thursday returned to the High Cort for a mention of the case.

Mr Obado and his two co-accused— his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and Mr Casper Ojwang’, a clerk at the Migori County Assembly— presented themselves before the High Court in Milimani, Nairobi, in the company of his lawyers.

They appeared before High Court’s Deputy Registrar, Criminal Division, Roselyn Aganyo.

The county boss, the first sitting governor to be charged with murder, walked to temporary freedom after Justice Jessie Lesiit granted him a Sh5 million that came with strict conditions on November 16.

He had spent more than a month at the Industrial Area Prison Remand.

His co-accused are still in remand after the judge denied them bond after the prosecution argued that evidence in their possession directly links the two to the murder and they may interfere with witnesses.

The three have denied murdering Ms Otieno, a former Rongo University student, and her unborn baby.

During the Thursday court date, defence lawyers Cliff Ombeta and Rogers Sagana told the Ms Aganyo that Mr Obado has complied with conditions imposed by Justice Lesiit.

Ms Aganyo directed the case be mentioned again January 21, 2019.
