Thirty witnesses have been lined up to testify against Governor Obado who is charged alongside his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and Casper Obiero, a clerk in Migori County.

According to the prosecution, there are two protected witnesses.

Obado and his co-accused took plea in September last year where they denied killing Sharon and her seven-month unborn baby.

They denied the charges before judge Jessie Lesiit who released the Governor on a cash bail of Ksh.5 million and two sureties of Ksh.5 million each.

Mr. Obiero and Mr. Oyamo were initially denied bail but were later freed on a cash bail of Ksh.1 million each or an alternative bond of Ksh.2 million each.

26-year-old Sharon Otieno went missing on September 3 last year after a meeting with a Nation journalist in Migori.

She was found dead two days later near Kodera Forest in Homa Bay County.

The student, who Governor Obado later revealed had been in a relationship with him, was seven months pregnant at the time of her gruesome murder.

A  post-mortem conducted on Sharon’s body revealed she was stabbed eight times, strangled and raped.
