ODM Party leader Raila Odinga will not stand with Migori Governor Okoth Obado who is facing murder charges.

The county boss was charged with the murder of Sharon Otieno, a 26 year old woman who he admitted to have had an affair with. By the time of her death, she was 7 months pregnant.

According to Raila, Obado should prove his innocence in a court of law.

“So far all indicators are pointing at Obado, let him prove his innocence in court,” Raila said.

Speaking in Migori while campaigning for the party’s Senator candidate Ochillo Ayacko, the former prime minister noted that killing a mother and her unborn child in the Luo culture is a bad omen and an act of witchcraft.

“It was unfortunate that a very young woman and her angel were murdered brutally. If the killers didn’t need the child or the mother they should have spared their lives,” he added.

Obado was on Wednesday around 10 am admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) and was diagnosed with malaria.
