Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has on Thursday failed to support Governor Obado in murder charge that he is facing but instead he has asked him to prove his innocence.
Raila Odinga who is a campaign trail in Western region for ODM candidate Ochillo Ayacko, made a stopover at Awendo before addressing a crowd that had gathered.
In his speech, the opposition leader categorically failed to support the charged governor but instead said that all evidence of Sharon’s murder point at his and its him to prove that he never committed the offence.
Governor Obado who was arrested for the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno was on Wednesday rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital after falling ill in remand.
Hon. Raila Odinga termed the cruel murder of Sharon as an act of witchcraft and said that if the killers never wanted the child or the mother they could have spared their lives.
According to Luo traditions, such a murder is considered a bad omen.
Reports indicate that the accused Migori Governor fell out with his party following his failure to support ODM choice of Ochillo Ayacko for the position he is holding at the moment.
The rivalry between the two leaders has been so intense that at one point fights erupted during a campaign for then selected Ochillo Ayacko.
It took the intervention of Hon. Raila Odinga who brought the two leaders together.
