The murder case against Migori Governor Okoth Obado, his personal assistant Michael Oyamo and former Migori County clerk Caspal Obiero continued on Thursday with two clinical officers telling the court that they forged medical documents for Obado’s personal assistant Oyamo.
Cliff Momanyi, a clinical officer, told the court that he received a token of Ksh.1,500 to falsify a medical document to lie that Oyamo had been attacked by unknown people of the night Rongo University student Sharon Otieno was murdered.
“All the medical documents were forgeries… I am the one who did the forgeries and received Ksh.1,500… I regret my actions,” Momanyi told the court.
The Governor, his Personal Assistant and Casper Obiero are charged with the murder of Sharon Otieno and her unborn baby on September 3, 2018.
Another witness, Justus Magati Moindi told the court that he was approached by Caspal and Oyamo a day after the murder of Sharon to help in forging a medical report indicating that Oyamo needed specialised treatment at a hospital in Kisumu where his medical insurance would cater for the bill.
According to Moindi, he was told that Oyamo was attacked by unknown people while in possession of a lot of money belonging to his boss the Governor which was stolen.
“When the two came, Caspal told me that they had a problem and they wanted to see me privately. I asked whether it was related to medical treatment and they said yes. I asked them to go and buy a card at the reception but they told me before they could buy, they wanted to talk to me,” Moindi told the court.
The medical document was to indicate that Oyamo had been assaulted by unknown people and sustained multiple blunt injuries.
The report was reportedly prepared by Cliff Momanyi who was Moindi’s classmate at the University and who works at Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital.
“He asked for details of Oyamo so I handed over the phone to Oyamo who explained to him (Momanyi) his details,” he told the court.
When asked why he requested his colleague Momanyi to prepare the documents, Moindi said it was because Oyamo was a friend he knew and he was assisting him because he had told him that he was going to lose his job.
The hearing continues.
