Migori County Governor Okoth Obado has appeared before Lady Justice Jessie Lessit today (Tuesday), in apre-trial murder case involving late Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.

The trio denied the charges and were released on cash bail with the governor issuing Sh5 million and two sureties of Sh5 million, while Mr Obiero and Mr Oyamo had to deposit Sh1 million each or an alternative bond of Sh2 million each, by the Court of Appeal.
