Migori Governor Okoth Obado on Wednesday paraded his wife and children as he spoke for the first time on the brutal murder of pregnant university student Sharon Otieno.
At the hastily convened press conference at a Nairobi Hotel, Governor Obado “categorically” denied involved in what he referred to as “brutal murder of Sharon”.
“I ask all agencies involved to speed up investigations so the killers are brought to book as quickly as possible,” he said in his short address to journalists at Serena Hotel in Nairobi.
Mr Obado asked Migori residents to continue praying for him. He also asked Kenyans to avoid “medieval justice” and let police complete their investigations.
He sent a condolence message to the family of Sharon and asked politicians and members of the public to stop speculation.
He was flanked by his wife Hellen Okoth, daughter Evaline and son Jerry. The governor remembered to introduce his family after reading the prepared press statement.
