As a law abiding citizen, i want to state here very clearly and very categorically that i have nothing and absolutely nothing to do with the cruel death of Rongo university student, Sharon Otieno. And i want to ask all our government agencies, all the agencies that are mandated with the investigations to speed up there work so that the real killers can be brought to book as fast as possible. Yesterday i went to cord my statement on this matter.
I want to call upon our politicians and other leaders and even the media to avoid unnecessary punishment and proclamation so that our government agencies that are in charged with investigation are given time to do there job.
Last but not least, let me take this opportunity to thank you members of the fourth estate for taking your time to come for this press briefing. Allow me to introduce my family, they are not all but i have one of my daughters here, i also have one of my sons and my wife is also here. Am also accompanied by my staffs and my political advisers and also my chief of staff. And given that the murder is still under investigations ladies and gentlemen, i don’t think it is fair for you to ask me questions. The best thing is to give room to us and other agencies to carry on their investigations. Thank you.”
