Opposition leader Raila Odinga has called for speedy investigations into the death of 26-year-old Sharon Otieno.

This is after the lifeless body of Sharon was found in Kodera Forest, Homa Bay County on Wednesday morning.

The former premier, while condemning the brutal murder of the second year Rongo University student, further stated that during a Wednesday campaign briefing for the upcoming Migori Senatorial by-election, “We observed a minute of silence in her honour.”

The deceased went missing after she was abducted alongside a Nation journalist who was pursuing a story implicating Migori Governor Okoth Obado in a love triangle.

Mr. Oduor, however, managed to escape a few hours after their kidnapping. He recorded a statement with the Nyanza Regional CID Coordinator where he revealed shocking details of his encounter with unknown assailants.

On Tuesday, the Governor’s personal assistant Michael Oyamo was arrested in connection with the abduction saga.

Homa Bay Police Commander Marius said the body of the late Sharon was moved to Rachuonyo Sub county District Hospital mortuary.
