Migori Governor Okoth Obado will now have to appear before the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) again after DNA results revealed he fathered the unborn child of Sharon Otieno.
Mr. Obado is expected to record a statement at the DCI, Nairobi, alongside his wife - Hellen - as investigations now indicate they are persons of interest in the murder of Sharon.
"There are 99.99+% more chances that Zacharia Okoth Obado is the biological father of the donor of the DNA generated from the foetus that is Sharon Otieno’s child,” the DNA statement reads.
Migori’s First Lady was roped into the murder after investigations revealed that the 26-year-old was involved in a romantic affair with her husband, Mr. Obado.
Sharon is said to have forwarded some of her romantic messages with the Migori boss to Mrs. Obado and son, Daniel.
A report by the Nation, indicates that the unborn child was killed by a stab through Sharon’s abdomen.
Four suspects have since been arrested over the brutal killing of the second-year medical student.
Obado’s PA Michael Oyamo was the first to be apprehended as he was the last person in contact with Sharon and Nation journalist Barrack Oduor. Mr. Oduro was following up on the love triangle involving Sharon and the Governor when he was kidnapped.
Luckily he escaped death by a whisker and left Sharon in the hands of the assailants who ended up killing her.
Another suspect is Caspal Obiero, a clerk at Migori County and the Governor’s aide. Mr. Obiero is said to have been in possession of a Toyota Fielder used to kidnap Sharon and Mr. Oduor.
The car is registered under the name of his wife Olivia Oloo. She, however, told detectives that her husband was using the vehicle at the time of the murder.
A taxi driver identified as Jack Gombe is also behind bars after he was found driving the Toyota Fielder.
Governor Obado’s bodyguard Okoth Omondi was also apprehended when he accompanied the County Clerk to record a statement at Oyugis Police Station.
