Friday May 31, 2019-Slain Rongo University student Sharon Otieno's mother has narrated how she was heartlessly conned by another woman while grieving her daughter's death.
Speaking during the interview, Melida Auma Otieno, explained that she was conned Ksh 43,000 by a woman who pretended to be her daughter's friend.
It all started when the lady in question began taking people she claimed were Sharon's friends to her home to grieve.
Shortly after, the lady borrowed the Sh43, 000 from Auma promising to pay back but then disappeared and stopped picking her calls.
“The lady used to bring people into my home during the sorrowful moments in the name of Sharon’s friends. She later borrowed the money from me, promising to pay back after one week.
"I have learnt this was a con game because she no longer receives my calls, besides deserting her house in Homa Bay for an unknown place,” she narrated.
At the same time, Melida disclosed that she has never fully reconciled with the fact her daughter is dead.
“I weep every time I see her grave. I still can’t believe she is not around.”
“Losing a child through normal death can make her go out of memory faster than when she is murdered. I have not accepted that Sharon is dead,” she continued.
