Was Chris Msando tortured to death?

The body of slain head of ICT at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chris Msando had wounds indicating that he may have been tortured to death.

The body has visible injuries at the back of his head and on the stomach.

Both hands had cut wounds, indicating that he may have been tortured.

IEBC Chairman  Wafula Chebukati on Monday viewed Mr Msando’s body and said it was clear “he had been tortured”.

He termed the death as “murder” even as he agreed that a post-mortem had to be carried out to determine the cause of his death.


“We demand to know who killed him and why,” Mr Chebukati said at City Mortuary in Nairobi.

He called on the government and police to reveal the killers of Mr Msando.

Later, Nasa campaign manager Musalia Mudavadi, who had a chance to view the body said it was clear that whoever did it was inhumane.

The body was taken to the City Mortuary on Sunday at 11pm by a police vehicle and booked in as an unknown adult.

It was brought together with that of another female. Mr Msando’s body was later transferred to Lee Funeral Home.

The IEBC ICT manager was reported missing on Friday night after leaving his office at the Anniversary Towers at 11pm.
