Earlier this month, we reported the story of a seven months pregnant university student, Sharon Otieno, who was abducted and killed in a brutal way by her assailants.
The 26-year-old second-year Medical Records and Information student at Rongo University was strangled, stabbed eight times and raped by her assailants. She was stabbed four times at the back, three times on the neck and once on the left side of her abdomen. Her unborn baby was also stabbed. Read previous post here.
Now, a paternity test by the government has proven that Migori Governor Zachary Okoth Obado was the biological father of his wife’s late sister’s baby who was stabbed to death alongside the mother.
The governor had earlier admitted he had an affair with the deceased lady but denied he had anything to do with her kidnapping and death.
According to TUKO News, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives are planning to invite the governor for questioning over the cold-blood murder of the 26-year-old lady whom the governor had an illicit affair with and impregnated.
The detectives are also expected to interrogate Obado’s wife, Hellen, after it emerged she exchanged some provocative text messages with Sharon a few days before the seven-month pregnant woman was found dead.
It was also revealed that after Obado’s wife sister became pregnant, she was summoned by angry relatives who accused her of crossing the bloodline. The deceased was pressured to terminate the pregnancy to avoid a curse, but she ignored and wanted to have the baby.
The detectives are also looking at Hellen’s brother, Naftali Odie, as yet another person of interest in the homicide.
