Msando has been treated as a criminal, grieving mother laments

The late Chris Msando’s mother has for the first time revealed how her son encountered a painful death at the hands of his captors.

Msando, who was the ICT manager at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) at the time of his death, was brutally murdered alongside a female companion by unknown people a week to the August 8 general elections.

His killers are yet to be brought to book.

This past week, Mama Maria Oloo Msando spoke to an online TV in an emotional exclusive interview in her native Dholuo language from her Lifunga home in Ugenya constituency.

The interview which was  been translated in English, is available on YouTube.


“I talked to Chris on that Friday he was killed,” Mama Msando explained in the interview that incidentally was made public on the day of the October 26 repeat presidential election.

“The government and the President has never said anything (about the death). Chris is treated as if he was a criminal.”

“I have since been waiting for the government to arrest the killers.”

“I really wanted to see the person who killed Chris arrested.”

Mama Msando also questioned why senior IEBC officials never attended her son’s burial.

“I never saw either Chiloba, Chebukati or any IEBC official at my son’s burial.”

“I found his fingers cut, probably so that someone could get the IEBC password. He also had deep cuts all over his body.”
