Sharon Otieno lived the high life before her life was brutally ended in a murder that has shocked the country.A look into her Facebook account showed a woman who was living a luxurious life at least by the standards of a university student in a public university.
From dining in high-end restaurants, staying in luxurious hotels, and frequent trips to the airport . it is the life that many students only dream of.
According to blogger innocent Ngare , sharon otieno was blackmailing the Governor few days before her death
“Sharon was Governor Okoth Obado’s clande for a long time. As a matter of fact, peoole close to the Governor inform me that she used to accompany him on foreign trips abroad -and on taxpayer’s money. A third-year student at Rongo University College, and with lots of money coming in from Governor Obado, Sharon immersed herself into the glamorous life.
She was a frequent guest at Imperial Hotel in Kisumu where she threw endless parties for her friends -on taxpayer’s money. Sources tell me that an Executive Suite in the hotel was always reserved for her when she was in town -on taxpayer’s money. However, things soon took a nasty twist.”
Seemingly, the Governor refused to yield to her blackmail. So Sharon contacts Barrack Oduor, a Nation Media Group Correspondent based in Migori. She tells him the story and Barrack calls the Governor’s office asking for a response -and an adequate response they received. The Governor promises to send his PA Michael Oyamo to clear the air ” says blogger innocent
DO YOU REMEMBER THE STORY OF MERCY KEINO ?
I have a confession to make. When I read about the grisly murder of the University of Nairobi student Mercy Keino, I cringed and cried so loud those near me might have thought I had gone crazy. I was.
Days after Kiambu Governor William Kabogo was absolved of the murder of Mercy Keino, the University of Nairobi student who was found dead in unclear circumstances after being invited to a party where Kabogo was a guest, her family says they hold the governor “morally responsible” for what happened to their first born child.
Mercy’s father, Joseph Keino and his wife, Christine Keino, said though her death remains a mystery, they believe she would still be alive had she not had a brush with Kabogo.
William Kabogo was later cleared of any wrongdoing in the death of University of Nairobi student Mercy Keino in 2011.
Magistrate Peter Ndwiga ruled that Keino was not a victim of criminal homicide. Kabogo and five others had been adversely mentioned in an inquest into the death.
Before her death, she and other young women attended a party hosted by Kabogo at Wasini Luxury Apartments, Westlands. She was reported to be drunk and unruly and escorted out.
Her body was found on Waiyaki Way in Nairobi on the night of June 17-18, 2011. It was mutilated and bones had been fractured.
