PRUDENCE WANZA – The trial of Sharon Otieno’s murder case involving Governor Okoth Obado has been adjourned.
This follows after the advocates of Sharon’s family opposed the application by the 2nd and 3rd accused persons; Michael Oyamo and Caspal Obiero, in the case wanting Judge Jessie Lessit to recuse herself from the case.
The advocates have sited in their response that the 2nd and 3rd accused should have a made the application after they were denied bond. They have also added that it is a tactic to delay the case.
The lawyers representing the suspects also want the lawyers of the victim to be blocked from participating in the case since the state is the complainant in the matter.
Judge Jessie Lessit has issued directions that the defense makes their responses by 15th May.
The case will be heard on 29th May.
