Family wants Msando’s murderers brought to book

The family of slain electoral agency’s official Chris Msando wants the government to expose those behind his murder.

Family members accused the government of being mum on the findings of the investigations, three months into his death.

Ms Alice Msando (his elder sister) called on foreign agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations to assist in the investigations if local authorities are overwhelmed.

“Chris died in the line of his duty. It is unfair and painful to see that everyone: IEBC, politicians and the government have all forgotten about his death,” she said.

She said that her brother’s death was a blow for the family.

Her mother, she said, is ill and unable to seek specialised medical attention her brother had been providing.


The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission ICT manager was found dead on July 31 after missing for three days.

His body and that of a woman he was with were found in a bush in Kikuyu, Kiambu County.

The mother, Maria Oloo Msando, said that her slain son deserves to be honoured.

“It is time the government broke its silence on the circumstances surrounding Chris’ death and delivered justice to the young, honest man who died while serving this Country,” Mrs Msando said.


She added: “I would be happy if we are shown the people behind the murder of my son. I am encountering sleepless nights and cannot eat because I am having Chris’ memories.

“I would not do anything to the murderers but I would simply question them why they killed him.”

Mrs Msando, 75, suffers from risky blood pressure.
