Melida Auma the mother of slain Rongo University student Sharon Otieno has joined politics under UDA and will vie for the Homabay MCA seat.
Reports confirm that Auma ditched ODM over allegations that they never fulfilled their promise following the death of her daughter back in 2018.
The case which is still in court came into light after her body was found in a forest in Oyugis, Homabay County. Postmortem results confirmed that Sharon succumbed to seven stab wounds.

Migori Governor Okoth was linked to the murder following revelations of their affair leading to her pregnancy with DNA results confirming that the unborn baby was indeed his.
Materials collected from the scene also confirmed that the late student was raped before meeting her death. Some of the evidence was however missing during the ongoing trial.
Sharon is reported to have been planning to expose the Governor after he refused to to meet his part of the agreement before a group of thugs allegedly sent by the County boss abducted her.
