Sharon's Killers Want to Assassinate Me - Junet Mohamed
Suna East MP Junet Mohamed claimed that the people who killed Sharon Otieno were out to assassinate him.
In a post on his Twitter account, Junet, who is the whip of the minority in the National Assembly, claimed that people who murdered Rongo University student Sharon Otieno were also after his life.
"Sharon killers are planning to assassinate me and I got your threats ... A Muslim does not fear death," the post read.
Several people asked the Suna East lawmaker whether he had reported the issue to the police but failed to respond to the queries.
Former State House operative Dennis Itumbi also queried the MP on whether he had alerted the police, however, Junet did not respond to this either.
"Pole sana my friend. Pray that you remain safe. A tweet is good, but an OB Number is better. Just in case you do not know how to get an OB number, walk to the nearest police station and they will record and investigate and hey you can ask the media to accompany you," Itumbi stated.
Detectives were looking for three suspects they believed were crucial in unravelling the murder of Ms Otieno to both Uganda and Tanzania.
Police had charged Ms Otieno’s boyfriend, Migori governor Okoth Obado, his personal assistant Michael Oyamo, and Migori County clerk Caspal Obiero.
However, reports claimed that they were yet to arrest some of the suspects believed to have been part of the killer squad that tortured Sharon, who was kidnapped alongside Nation journalist Barrack Oduor.
Although Mr Oduor managed to jump out of a moving vehicle, Ms Otieno’s lifeless body was later found by a herdsman near Kodera Forest.
