 In a media briefing at parliamentary buildings, led by Migori women rep Dr Pamela Otieno condemned the act urging relevant government agencies to Fastrack investigation on the matter.

“It is alleged that the killing of Sharon and her unborn child is linked to the senior Migori county officials. If indeed it is true  this is very unfortunate, shameful and unacceptable.”Dr Odhiambo said

“I call upon all investigative agencies including DCI , EACC to take this matter with the urgency it deserves.”Dr Odhiambo said
