The clinical officer at Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital, who testified in the ongoing Sharon Otieno’s murder case, has gone missing.
The medic, Cliff Momanyi, had admitted to fabricating medical reports for Migori governor Okoth Obado’s personal assistant Michael Oyamo.
However, after the Wednesday, March 23, session at Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi, Momanyi’s family said they could not locate him.
The Kenya Union of Clinical Officers secretary-general Kisii branch Victor Bwanchete said efforts to locate their colleague have proved futile.
Through the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives, Bwanchete said Momanyi’s phone was traced to a rough road around Bomet.
In the case, the clinical officer said he faked medical records for Oyamo on the day Sharon, then a Rongo University student, was killed.
In the records, Momanyi confessed that he was forced to fill out fake medical documents to show that Oyamo suffered accidental suffocation and choking by unknown people.
The doctor said he faked and made these records official on September 4, 2018, when Sharon’s body was discovered at Kodera Forest.
He said Oyamo did not come to the hospital but was requested to fill the medical records form by the accused’s proxy, identified as Justus, who hails from Migori.
“Justus called me and asked me to fill out the outpatient card. He gave me the patient’s name as Michale Oyamo. I wrote it as an assault by unknown persons,” said Momanyi.
In the case, Obado, Oyamo and Migori county clerk Caspal Obiero are accused of the murder of Otieno and her unborn child with the governor being the main suspect.
Obado was confirmed to be the biological father of the baby Sharon was expecting.
