Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has once again sent Kenyans talking after a controversial post he made this evening through his Twitter account.
Boni who was present at the Milimani High Court this afternoon during Okoth Obado’s bond application hearing tweeted that he had gone there to stand with his “friend” Mr Obado who is being trialed over the murder of university student Sharon Otieno.
Khalwale becomes the first politician to publicly show his support for the troubled Migori governor and minutes after the post the comments section was already flooded. Some felt this was a wrong move while others expressed their support to the former Senator and added that they felt Mr Obado was innocent.
Did you stand with Sharon's mother also?
