VIDEO: Sharon was impregnated by the governor who suspected his son, says Nation journalist

Published

IN BRIEF: “Obado suspected that Sharon, who was pregnant with his child, was double dealing him with his son after noticing that they were frequently texting each other,” says the journalist.

Nation Media Group journalist Barrack Oduor who was abducted alongside slain Rongo University student Sharon Otieno but managed to escape is now speaking out…and the details are explosive.

Oduor, who escaped by jumping off the moving car belonging to kidnappers, now claims that he was privy to details about the alleged love triangle between Sharon and Migori Governor Okoth Obado.

Speaking to Daily Nation, the reporter who claims to have interacted with Sharon for long said Governor Obado allegedly fell out with the 26-year-old after discovering that she was in contact with his (Obado) son.

“I met with Sharon and interacted severally for the past one month. She told me she was having an affair with Obado who had even impregnated her but refused to take responsibility of the pregnancy. She informed me their relationship went south after Obado realised she was chatting with his son thus cheating on him,” Oduor said.

The journalist said Sharon contacted him seeking to have her affair with the ODM Governor exposed since he had abandoned her after she became pregnant.

“The girl who was a student confirmed she received Sh 100,000 from Obado a month before we met. However, she said the governor neglected her calls and text messages after sending the amount which was less than what he used to send before,” Oduor explained.

He says Governor Obado accused her of cheating on him with his son after he found out that the two had been exchanging text messages.

Sharon’s mother admitted to having knowledge of her daughter’s engagement with Obado but claimed that Obado had refused to fulfill his promise of awarding her county government tenders.

A post-mortem examination carried out on her body on Friday confirmed that Sharon died from excessive bleeding after being stabbed several times on the stomach, neck and back.

Showdown looms in Parliament over fuel levy

Published

BY OLIVIA MUNGWANA

Battle lines are drawn as legislators consider a memorandum in which President Uhuru Kenyatta had expressed reservations on the Finance Bill, which MPs had passed an amendment suspending a 16 per cent VAT on petroleum products.

And today, the MPs find themselves between a rock and a hard place as they are called upon to back recommendations in the memorandum to ease pressure on Treasury, unlock impediments and allow fiscal decisions to move the country forward even as a number of them insist they will oppose.

The lawmakers had, in the Finance Bill, passed an amendment suspending the  levy on petroleum products for a further two years.

But Uhuru returned the Bill to Parliament with a proposal to cut the fuel tax by half to eight 8 per cent.

Despite reports of discord and revolt among Jubilee legislators, the leader of majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale, was yesterday confident the motion containing the presidential memorandum on the Finance Bill will sail through without much resistance.

Jubilee MPs are this morning scheduled  for a meeting with President Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto where they will lobbied to back the memorandum, while the Opposition team will meet at the County Hall to chart the forward.

House Minority Leader John Mbadi  and his Senate counterpart James Orengo (Siaya) were emphatic that the Opposition will reject the motion in totality.

“We don’t need any VAT on petroleum products. Whether it is eight per cent it is not good because it still has a spiral effect to the economy,” Mbadi said, adding; “We have a meeting on Tuesday (today) where we may take a position against the proposals by the President.”

JKIA gets drugs sniffer dogs ahead of direct US flights

Published

on

Kenya has acquired three narcotic and explosive busting sniffer-dogs to beef up checks at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and Moi International Airport ahead of New York-Nairobi direct flights.

Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) Enforcement Manager Kamau Ng’ang’a said the three join a fourth German Shepherd donated by America to be manned by 10 specially trained handlers.

“We are ready and set for the US-Kenya direct flights and this has seen us re-align our strategies to ensure all parcels and carrier bags are checked for prohibited drugs or explosives. We have also acquired new scanners from China that supplement the work of the dogs,” he said.

Kenya is a transit point for drugs bound from places like Afghanistan and the US.

“Our main role is to assess, collect and receive payments but must also ensure illegal substances are not passed through Kenya to other markets. We are glad Kenya now has dog-training schools that will supplement foreign dog-training for enhanced results,” Mr Ng’ang’a said.

Kenya has received the final nod to start direct Kenya-US flights which will open a new avenue for the movement of goods and passengers thereby helping shore up revenue for both countries.

Main exports from Kenya to the US include clothing which earned Sh37 billion last year.

Flower exporters expect higher revenue from sales to the US with Kenyan traders enjoying lower import charges due to the shorter route.

The dogs’ unit was established in January 2005 and has helped nab consignments of heroin, cocaine and bhang as well as other harmful chemicals conceiled in carrier bags and parcels.

Mr Ng’ang’a said the dogs would help fast-track inspection thereby supplementing the physical and scanning checks at the international airports.

The handlers were trained locally with some undertaking specialised training in Japan.
