Sharon Otieno's ex-husband finally breaks silence after gruesome murder

Okuta believe Sharon's killers will be found soon

According to the Daily Nation, Okuta confirmed that Sharon was married to him but was indisposed to speak about their marriage. He said the matter was too emotional for him to talk about.

“This matter is too emotive for me to comment. If I wanted to comment about it, I would have done so long ago. I would rather leave the matter to the police and other investigators to find out what happened. That is all I can say,”  said Okuta.

Okuta believes that Sharon’s killers will be found soon. He however, maintained that the family spokesperson Joshua Okong’o and the police are the one to talk more about the matter.

“What the spokesperson of the family said about the family of the deceased is enough. I will not say anything. Please go and talk to the police for more information,” he said, then left for the staffroom.

The family spokesman had revealed that Ms Otieno had been married to Okuta, and they had a son and two daughters.


Sources said that the two parted ways last year due to marital problems, and Sharon opted to go and stay with her parents where she met her death.

“The two separated a few months after Sharon joined Rongo University. They separated due to marital problems and Sharon relocated to her parents’ home,” said an employee at the school.

Okuta comes from Kamagambo in Rongo Sub-county, Migori County, and has been teaching at Rapogi High School for the last four-and-half years.

He graduated from the University of Nairobi with a bachelor’s degree in education in 2013.
