IEBC condoles with family of murdered Siaya poll official

IEBC on Sunday sent a condolence message to the family of the late Caroline Odinga.

Caroline, a deputy presiding officer in Ugenya, was found dead and her body dumped near her home in Sega.

“The Commission sends condolences to the family of the late Ms Caroline Odinga.”

“She was a DPO (temporary staff) in Ugenya during the polls,” the electoral agency said on twitter.

The 34-year-old’s body was discovered on Saturday after which police were informed.

Ukwala OCPD Paul Tiriki said they have launched investigations into the brutal murder.

Tiriki said the body of the late bore multiple cuts on the head, face and neck.

Her husband Mathias Otieno told reporters the wife had gone to Sega polytechnic for a meeting with other IEBC officials.

He said the family is neither aware of what transpired at the meeting nor the agenda of the same.

The mother of four was a teacher at Ugenya High School.
