In his ruling on Wednesday morning, Judge Luka Kimaru agreed with the prosecution saying that it was only fair that the suspect be remanded.

“All his rights must be upheld…any relatives visiting, counsel or his basic rights as food and access to basic amenities…

“After 14 days he should be brought to court either to be charged or released,” Judge Kimaru added.

Oyamo was brought to Nairobi from Homa Bay on Tuesday evening after his DNA samples were taken by homicide detectives probing the killing of Sharon Otieno.

He had also been grilled for several hours alongside his boss Migori Governor Okoth Obado.
