The day is finally here! Migori Governor Okoth Obado is set to face trial alongside two of his co-accused charged for the gruesome murder of Rongo University Student Sharon Otieno.

The trial officially begins on Tuesday.

Fireworks are expected in Court following the recent decison by Governor Obado’s co-accused Caspal Obiero and Michael Oyamo to lodge an appeal seeking to have Justice Jessie Lessit disqualify herself from the case.

The duo have argued that Justice Lessit has already judged them guilty even before the official hearing of the case starts. They have cited Lesit’s failure to grant them bail as a case of concern.

The two spent several months in remand until they were released on bond last December by the Court of Appeal.

Mr Obado, Mr Oyamo and Mr Obiero have denied murdering 26-year-old Sharon, an offence they allegedly committed between September 3 and 4 last year in Owade, in Rachuonyo sub-county, Homa Bay County.

The three have also been charged with the murder of Sharon’s unborn baby.

Some 24 witnesses are set to testify in the case.
