The former commissioner of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Dr Roselyn Akombe, on Sunday revealed how gory her last memory of the late IEBC ICT manager, Chris Msando, is.
She recalled Msando’s “twisted neck” and the “deep cuts on [his] arm and thigh”.
Akombe hopes that one day, justice will be found even if two years have passed without anyone been charged.
“One day the truth will be written in indelible ink,” Akombe wrote.
Today marks the second anniversary since Msando was found dead in Muguga Forest in Kikuyu, Kiambu. His body was found barely a week before the August 8, 2017 General Election, alongside 21-year-old Carol Ngumbu.
A post-mortem exam done days after Msando’s death revealed that the IEBC ICT manager was strangled to death.
“He died from strangulation and he also had incisions on his right arm, but the rest of the body was intact,” the chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor said then.
Two years down the line, Msando’s mother, Mary Oloo, still wonders who killed her last born son and why.
“I have been waiting for that time when I will be called to court for the hearing of my son’s murder case. I just want to see the killers eye to eye so that I can hear the reasons why they killed him. If he stole something, let them say it. If they win the case against my son, let it be. I won’t mind so long as the legal process is exhausted,” the 80-year-old told Nation.
In September 2017, a suspect in Msando’s case was released by the high court without a single charge.
