The President also condoled with the family of the late Msando and that of the lady - Caro Ngumbu - killed alongside him.

"We are all deeply shocked and saddened by the murder of Chris Msando and Caro Ngumbu," Kenyatta said in a statement.

He further urged Kenyans against speculating noting: "Careless speculation in this time of grief only makes the work of investigators harder, and it only adds to the pain of those who loved him".

"Let us respect his life, his achievements, and his memory by allowing these investigations to proceed calmly.

The President also called on Kenyans to maintain peace and remain united.

"...we must remain united. This is not the time to allow a tragedy such as this to divide us, to turn brother against brother. In the face of death, we stand strong together: so that we can mourn a patriot; so that we can comfort his family and those he loved," President Kenyatta added.
