The mother of Sharon Otieno, Melida Auma has asked Migori county for upkeep for the three children left behind by her daughter claiming that she was the breadwinner before her death.
She said that they had been rendered hopeless after the death of their daughter and that the county should intervene.
“As a family, we have been rendered hopeless since our only provider, Sharon is no more. Migori County Government should intervene and provide for me the way Sharon has been doing. We are ready to accept any assistance from anywhere since Am left with Sharon’s Children and they need upkeep which was being provided by the deceased,” she was quoted.
Ms Auma noted that she is willing to accept help from well wishers in order to take care of the children. She was the first to highlight the relationship between Governor Okoth Obado and her daughter. She even claimed that her daughter was in love with the governor.
“Sharon was in love with him and was even expecting his baby. There were even talks to give her county contracts,” she claimed.
The Migori governor is currently being remanded at the Industrial area prison awaiting to be presented in court. He pleaded not guilty to the murder of the 26 year old woman.
Sharon Otieno is yet to be buried.
