Homa bay town MP Peter Opondo Kaluma has made it clear that no burial would take place until Ms Otieno’s assailants are apprehended
Kaluma who spoke on behalf of the family, said her killers must be apprehended as fast as possible before burial plans can commence.
Sharon’s family yesterday rejected lawyer Cliff Ombeta, turning him away from Rachuonyo Level Four Hospital where the postmortem was done. He was there to represent the interests of Migori Governor Okoth Obado’s interests who is alleged to have impregnated the late Rongo University student.
The bereaved family insisted that Sharon’s body be removed from Rachuonyo South Sub-County Hospital morgue in Oyugis and transferred to Kirindo mortuary. They said they were not comfortable with the body lying at the former morgue. There was a crown of about 100 people waiting to view the body at the mortuary but they were denied a chance.
A postmortem examination on the late Sharon’s body revealed that she was strangled, stabbed eight times and possibly raped by her assailants. Her unborn baby also stabbed. She is said to have died of excessive bleeding from the stab wounds. She had been stabbed four times at the back, three times on the neck and once on the left side of her abdomen.
The stab she took to the abdomen harmed the foetus and led to its death. A DNA test will be done on the baby. Government Chief Pathologist Johansen Oduor established that there were elements of rape surrounding Sharon’s death. Used condoms were also found around where her body was discovered.
