The government has promised swift justice after Sharon Otieno, a university student, was found murdered inside a forest in Homa Bay on Tuesday night.

Government spokesman Eric Kiraithe said the wheels of justice will grind faster.

“As we mourn this untimely death, we take this opportunity to assure the public and media fraternity in particular that this matter will be expeditiously investigated and the perpetrators of this heinious crime will be made to face the full force of the law. Once again the government reiterates its dedication to uphold and protect media freedom,” he said in a statement.
