The High Court on Wednesday allowed police to detain Governor Okoth Obado’s personal assistant Michael Oyamo for 14 days at Muthaiga Police Station in Nairobi.

Oyamo, one of the key suspects in the murder of pregnant Rongo University student Sharon Otieno, appeared before Judge Kimaru at Milimani Law Courts Wednesday morning over the murder case.

Judge Kimaru ruled Oyamo be held to enable the prosecution to conclude the murder investigations.

The Governor’s PA was on Tuesday re-arrested moments after being released unconditionally by Homa Bay police and brought to Nairobi to answer to murder charges against him.
