Lawyer Miguna Miguna has blasted the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti for looking in the wrong places for the killers of university student Sharon Otieno.
Dr Miguna accused the DCI of engaging in a cat and mouse chase that will not help to nail the real killers of Sharon.
The accusation comes 10 days after Mr Kinoti had bragged that he only needed three days to finish the investigations. So far, only one suspect, Michael Oyamo has been arraigned in court.
In a Facebook post, Dr Miguna argued that matching the DNA of the unborn baby to the suspect is a useless exercise, but rather detectives should link the DNA at the crime scene to suspects.
PREGNANCY NOT THE CRIME
Miguna further stated that impregnating Sharon is not the crime that should be investigated but rather her murder.
“Impregnating Sharon Otieno wasn’t a crime. Murder is. Matching anyone’s DNA to her unborn baby is a useless exercise. Link the DNA at the crime scene to the murderers. Once the actual murderers have been identified and charged, then we can work backwards to know if they acted alone or they were hired and if they were hired, who hired them,” said Miguna.
He added: “Trying to whip up primitive emotions in order to create an unscientific and silly connection between the unborn baby and whoever had impregnated Sharon Otieno is trying to justify why that Chinese racist called Kenyans monkeys.”
Sharon Otieno body was found dumped in a thicket in Oyugis, in Homa Bay County, a day after she had been kidnapped together with Nation journalist Barrack Oduor.
The journalist managed to escape from his abductors.
