60-year-old man linked to Msando's death remanded

A Nairobi court has ordered a suspect, Andrew Kiprotich Rono, who has been linked to the death of IEBC ICT boss, Chris Msando, to be held in remand for seven more days to allow police to conclude their investigations.

Detectives requested the extension after the 14 days they had been granted by a Kiambu court to detain him had elapsed.

The 60-year-old suspect, an accountant at Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen), appeared before Nairobi Milimani Law Court’s Justice James Wakiaga in the case he is linked to the death of the electoral ICT boss and his female friend Maryanne Ngumbu.

The police accuse Rono of sending a threatening text message to the late Msando last year.

Msando was killed last month and his body and that of Ngumbu found dumped in Kikuyu, Kiambu County last month, at least a week before the general election was held.

Earlier this month, a 17-year-old girl was also arrested in connection with Msando’s killing and remanded for seven days to allow detectives finalize their investigation.

According to the police, the girl’s phone was allegedly used to send threatening messages to the late Msando. The messages were sent in June this year, a month before he was killed.
