IEBC ICT deputy director Chris Musando dead
The IEBC deputy ICT director Christopher Chege Musando, who disappeared on Friday night, is dead.
Police said his body and that of an unidentified female were found in Kikuyu, Kiambu County and taken to City Mortuary on Sunday.
Members of Mr Musando’s family identified his body at 11.30am on Monday.
Mortuary attendants said the bodies were brought in a police vehicle on Sunday and had deep cuts on one arm.
After viewing the body of Mr Musando, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said the government must tell the commission who killed the ICT deputy director and the motive behind the foul murder.
“There is no doubt that Chris Musando was tortured and killed. We need to know who did it and why,” said electoral boss Chebukati.
Further, the IEBC boss demanded gov’t security for all the electoral agency’s employees countrywide and postponed the testing of election results transmission which was to take place on Monday , July 31, at the Bomas of Kenya.
Earlier on Monday, police had ruled out foul play after his vehicle was found parked in Roysambu, Nairobi.
According to police, the IEBC ICT deputy director reportedly parked his vehicle at Roysambu on Friday at about 11pm and got off alone before walking into one of the apartments in the area.
A security guard who told police he saw Mr Musando said he did not know which house he went into after parking his car.
Earlier on Friday at about 10pm, Mr Musando, who is in charge of ICT systems and data centre support, was seen at Anniversary Towers, the electoral agency’s headquarters.
“The last communication from him is an SMS text sent to one of his colleagues at around 3:00 am on Saturday morning. The content of the SMS suggests that he was conscious and fully aware of his itinerary for that day,” read a police statement sent to newsrooms on Sunday.
Mr Musando’s wife, Elva Else Auma Buyu, had filed a missing person report at the Embakasi Police Station informing police that his three phones went unanswered.
