Kenyan Activists Demand Justice after Pregnant University Student’s Killing

NAIROBI – Activists flocked to the streets of Nairobi on Friday to call for justice over the suspected murder of a pregnant university student in the western town of Rongo.

Sharon Otieno, who was a student at Rongo University and had been seven-months-pregnant at the time of her killing, was found dead in Kodera Forest on Sept. 5 having been raped and stabbed, according to local media.

The protesters marched with balloons stuffed up their shirts and lay on the ground alongside placards reading “Life is priceless” and “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” during a symbolic action denouncing Otieno’s brutal killing.

Police were reportedly holding Michael Oyamo, the aide of the governor of Migori County in western Kenya, Okoth Obado, who has acknowledged that he is the father of Otieno’s unborn child.

While Otieno’s fetus would be buried Friday, Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma has been cited in local media reports as saying her body will not be laid to rest until those who killed her are arrested.

A candlelit vigil was set to be held on the evening in homage to the slain student, the epa-efe journalist said.
