BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,10TH SEPT 2018-Police on Sunday night arrested a former member of Homa Bay County Assembly after he was linked to the murder of Rongo University student Sharon Otieno.
Ex-Kanyadoto Ward Rep Lawrence Mula was arrested and questioned on Sunday evening after Nation journalist Barrack Oduor told police that the ex-lawmaker introduced him to Ms Otieno.
He was held at Homa Bay Police Station and was expected to be arraigned alongside other suspects today.
Homa Bay County Commander Marius Tum confirmed the interrogation but could not state whether Mr Mula would be arraigned.
He was expected to appear before a Homa Bay court alongside Mr Michael Oyamo who is an aide of Migori Governor Okoth Obado.
Mr Oyamo appeared before the court alone, with the prosecution seeking more days to wrap up their investigations.
Director of Criminal investigations George Kinoti on Sunday said he has watertight evidence that will lead to the successful prosecution of those who planned and executed the kidnapping and subsequent murder of Ms Otieno.
