Chris Msando's body was found in a forest outside Nairobi just over a week before election he was supposed to oversee.

Msando was declared missing over the weekend.

He was a key official at Kenya’s electoral commission. He was one of a handful of officials who had the electoral commission’s computer system passwords and knew the exact location of the servers to run the election.

In an earlier statement, a top information technology manager at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chebukati said Msando was last seen on Friday night and sent a text message to a colleague early on Saturday morning suggesting "that he was conscious and fully aware of his itinerary for that day."
