Worrying details emerge on journalist Barrack Oduor’s relationship with Sharon Otieno

New twist in Sharon Otieno's murder story

Obado told the police that at the time Oduor was contacting him for his side of the story, Sharon had already spread information of her pregnancy to the Governor’s family and to various other people in the county.

The Governor said that when he met Oduor, the reporter was in the company of Lawrence Mula, a former MCA.

However, Obado told the police that the Nation journalist was not merely interested in getting his side of the story, but also volunteered to negotiate between the Governor and Sharon.

The Migori County boss said he gave them the go-ahead to ask Sharon what she wanted.

The negotiations, however, did not go well as Obado declined to purchase the plot Sharon had identified.

A few days before Sharon’s brutal murder, Obado said Oduor had called to warn him that “things were getting out of hand”.

Obado said the journalist also told him not to blame him for anything that would happen on the Sharon matter.

The Governor’s statement is in stark contrast to the testimony given by Oduor who said he was in the process of getting Obado’s side of the story when he and Sharon were kidnapped.
