Saturday July 20, 2019-An inquest into the murder case of Rongo University student, Sharon Otieno, has taken a fresh twist after Judge Jessie Lesiit declined to quit.
According to Lesiit, the complainant failed to prove that there is a conflict of interest in the hearing of the case.
Lesiit had been faulted of biasness as the family of Sharon Otieno, who was Migori Governor Okoth Obado’s lover, seeks for answers following her cold-blood murder.
“No reasons of conflict interest were advanced to warrant the court to recuse itself,” Justice Lesiit stated.
Sharon was seven months pregnant before she was brutally murdered on the night of September 3, 2018 by people believed to have been sent by Governor Obado.
Obado, his personal assistant Michael Oyamo, and county clerk Casper Obiero were arrested over the links to the mysterious but they denied the claims.
The trial of the suspects will kick off on October 9.
