Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has called out his Migori counterpart Okoth Obado over the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
According to Sonko, the Migori governor should have used a condom if he didn’t want to take responsibility for Sharon’s unborn baby. Sharon, who was seven months pregnant, is said to have been carrying the governor’s child before she was brutally murdered.
Speaking on Saturday while addressing a gathering during the third anniversary celebrations of his late Father Gideon Kioko at his Mua farm, Machakos County, Sonko urged the authorities to ‘stop playing with Kenyans’ and immediately arrest governor Obado.
“Lastly, people have been talking about the Sharon issue with fear. The main suspect here is my fellow governor, Okoth Obado…shame on you…Shenzi kabisa.
“The postmortem conducted on Sharon indicates she was stabbed six times because governor Obado asked Sharon to abort the baby and she refused. Why didn’t he then use a condom? Shame on you,” fired Sonko.
Sonko further called on the authorities, specifically the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji and Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti to ‘stop playing with Kenyans’ and immediately arrest governor Obado.
“I’m now urging the DPP and Kinoti to stop playing games with Kenyans. Let him be arrested and prosecuted. Let us not lie to each other. Obado should carry his own cross. And I am telling Governor Josphat Nanok (COG chair) not to call me to any press conference to show solidarity with any murderer. We cannot forgive such a person,” Sonko added.
