Parents of Slain Kenyan Student Sharon Otieno Put Burial on Hold

Her parents say they are waiting for the culprits who took her life to be brought to book. Otieno was killed after she and Daily Nation Homa Bay correspondent Barack Oduor were abducted after allegedly being lured out of Rongo Hotel by Governor Okoth Obado's Personal Assistant Michael Oyamo. Otieno, seven months pregnant when she was killed, was apparently caught up in a love triangle with Obado and his son.
