Who Will Do IEBC Manager’s Work After Brutal Death? Chebukati Answers

The persons in charge after Chris Msando was killed

Speaking to journalists during demos held in Nairobi’s CBD protesting Msando’s killing, Chebukati stated that IEBC does not need to replace the slain manager.

He noted that Msando had well-equipped the team to carry out the work involved during and after the August 8 General Election.

“Chris was a team player and in the cause of his duty, he left behind a team that is going to carry on the work. I want to assure Kenyans that there is no cause for concern. The team left behind will do the work. We do not need any other expert from anywhere to continue with that exercise,” Chebukati said.

The late Msando was in charge of the ICT systems and data center support. He was very instrumental in the new integrated electronic management system that was going to be used during the elections.

Chebukati added: "The family of Msando has lost, IEBC has lost, and the country has lost. Chris Msando is a very senior manager in ICT department. At the time of the murder, the commission was just about to roll out the simulation exercise to confirm that ICT department is ready to transmit results to Kenyans after the August 8 General Election.

Before Chebukati’s remarks on Tuesday, NASA leaders demanded the IEBC to hire an independent international firm to oversee the working of Kenya Integrated Election Management System (KIEMS).

Addressing the press, the Opposition leaders led by Principal Musalia Mudavadi said that international expert from the Commonwealth or the United Nations (UN) should now oversee the KIEMS.

“We suggest that IEBC immediately secures the services of an international expert to secure the system. What we want at the end of the day is an election that will receive acceptance by Kenyans & the international community,” Mudavadi said.
