Michael Oyamo, Migori Governor Okoth Obado personal assistant accused by the state of murdering his boss’ pregnant girlfriend Sharon Otieno, has denied the charge.
Mr Oyamo pleaded not guilty when he appeared before the High Court Judge Jessi Lesiit in the capital Nairobi on Tuesday.
Like his boss who also denied the murder charge on Monday, Mr Oyamo, who was among the first suspects to be arrested, applied to be freed on bond.
The prosecution accused him of luring Ms Otieno from her parents’ home in Homa Bay County to Rongo, Migori, from where she and Nation journalist Barrack Oduor were handed over to killers.
In documents filed in court, Mr Oyamo made a false report at Uriri Police Station that he had been kidnapped.
The document reveal that he made the report on September 4 after luring and handing over the two to the abductors on September 3.
