How Chris Msando spent his last day before meeting painful death

August 1st, 2017 2 min read

On Friday, Mr Msando had appeared for a panel interview on NTV’s AM Live morning show, where he discussed exhaustively the transmission of election results on Tuesday next week.

The discussion lasted one and a half hours from 6am to 7.30am.

Later, he was a guest on KTN for some minutes between 6pm and 7pm where he held a brief demonstration of the system.

He also highlighted the commission’s election preparedness and the plans it had put in place to ensure the election is credible.


A close friend of Mr Msando said information from a company that provided a tracking device for Mr Msando’s vehicle said it had been on Thika Road and later Mombasa Road on Saturday.

The friend said Mr Msando had, two days before he disappeared, expressed fears for his life.

The friend, who requested anonymity to speak about the matter, said the deceased had also, in May, reported to the Central Police Station that he had been threatened.

The body of Mr Msando was picked on Saturday by police officers at around 10am.

The body was found in Kikuyu, off Naivasha-Nakuru highway, about two kilometres from the main road. It was picked by two Corporals from Kikuyu Police Station.

Residents told Nairobi News that that another body was recently recovered at the same location which was naked save for an underwear.


A cursory look at Mr Msando’s remains, now at Lee Funeral Home, reveals a possible struggle with his killers, who overpowered, hit and finished him.

The body has visible injuries in the back and left side of his head and on his belly.

Both hands have cut wounds and the right forearm is broken.

His face has no injury but fresh blood was oozing from the nose by Monday mid-morning.

The neck also had many injuries, pointing to possible strangling and bludgeoning by the death squad.

Mr Msando’s brother, Peter Msando said at the City Mortuary that the family was still in shock and requested that investigations into his death be speeded up.

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has not returned the Nation’s calls on the death.


Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, who had on Sunday posted a picture of himself next to Mr Msando’s vehicle, with allegations that he was having fun with a woman, came under fire on Twitter and Facebook.

“So, this is Chris Msando’s vehicle right now here in Roysambu. The idiot is enjoying sweet time with a woman. And the story was that he is privy to “rigging” and he can’t be found. Verily verily I say unto you Raila. You will not burn this country. Not when I am alive,” Mr Kuria had said in the post that has since been deleted.
