Michael Oyamo and Caspal Obiero, prime suspects in Sharon Otieno’s murder have been freed on a Ksh2 million bond each and one surety of same amount or a cash bail of Ksh1,000,000.
The two were charged alongside Migori governor Okoth Obado six months ago for the murder of the 25-year-old Ms Otieno, who was pregnant at the time of her brutal murder.
Oyamo was a personal assistant to Obado while Obieroworked for Migori county.
“We disagree with the superior courts’ decision to deny the two appellants and hereby direct they be admitted to bond of Sh2,000,000 with one surety of same amount or deposit a cash bail Sh1,000,000,” ruled the court of appeal.
Issuing the ruling, judges Mohammed Warsame, Otieno Odek and Daniel Musinga ordered the suspects not to do anything which may jeopardise justice being done in the case.
They were also ordered to deposit their passports in court.
