Court frees suspect linked to Msando's murder

The High Court in Nairobi has set free Andrew Kipkoech Rono who was being detained over the killing of the electoral commission ICT manager  Christopher Chege Msando a week before the August 8 poll.

On Monday, the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions told the court that it had not found enough evidence to charge Mr Rono with the murder of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries  Commission ICT boss Msando.

Prosecution told Justice James Wakiaga sitting at the Milimani Law Courts that the DPP had reached a conclusion that the man who has been in police custody for over two weeks on murder allegations be set free on condition that he be available to help the police in further investigation.

The police had alleged that Rono might have had a hand in Musando Murder, claiming he had sent Msando threatening messages last year.

A teenager who also had been arrested in Migori over alleged link to the death of Msando after police said her phone had been used to threaten Msando has also been free for lack of evidence the trail for the killers of the electoral commission employee runs cold.

The 17-year-old had been arraigned in Kiambu Law Court where police sought to detain her to conclude investigations.
