Sharon’s family rejected lawyer Cliff Ombeta, turning him away from Rachuonyo Level Four Hospital where the postmortem was done. He was there to represent the interests of Migori Governor Okoth Obado’s interests who is alleged to have had a relationship with the late Ms Otieno.

The bereaved family insisted that Sharon’s body be removed from Rachuonyo South Sub-County Hospital morgue in Oyugis and transferred to Kirindo mortuary. They said they were not comfortable with the body lying at the former morgue.

There was a crown of about 100 people waiting to view the body at the mortuary but they were denied a chance.

The late Sharon was pursuing a diploma in medical records and information at Rongo University, Migori County.
