Police issue new statement on Chris Msando's murder

Police have now issued a discouraging statement on Chris Msando's murder ahead of his burial on Saturday

Police have said that they have not made any considerable progress in investigating the events that led to the murder of Mr Msando, who is set for burial this weekend, The Standard reports on Thursday.

His killers are yet to be known and police officers investigating the matter on Wednesday said they were not making "any progress". Investigations into the killing of Msando and his female friend, Maryanne Ngumbu, slowed because of elections, the paper describes.

In the just concluded elections, Mr Msando was instrumental in the ICT infrastructure of the IEBC, which the opposition has since criticised for “cooking presidential results.”

In an address to his supporters shortly after the last week general elections, NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga hinted that the slain’s credentials were used to log into the IEBC database, a move that later manipulated results.

Earlier, police had said that two key suspects in the murder of Mr Msando were apprehended in Uganda, with over five others recording statements in Kenya, following the death of the manager, alongside a lady identified Ms Ngumbu (already buried), who were found dumped in a forest in Kikuyu in Kiambu County.

Meanwhile, the requiem mass for the late is underway at the Consolata Shrines in Westlands Nairobi ahead of his burial in Lifunga Village of Siaya County. Hundreds of politicians, especially from then opposition have flocked the church to condole with the family.

On Tuesday, NASA presidential candidate paid a courtesy call to the family of Mr Msando to condole with them. He has since reiterated that justice must be done for the family.
