Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) ICT Manager Chris Msando's mother, Maria Msando is dead.

Mama Msando breathed her last on Friday with the family sharing details of her last minutes alive.

Her eldest son, Peter Msando told the press that she succumbed to multiple organ failure on Friday morning.

She went into a coma at around 1 p.m. on Thursday and was rushed to Avenue Hospital in Kisumu for treatment.


She was placed in the Intensive Care Unit where her condition did not improve and breathed her last on Friday morning.

Peter added that the deceased had been ailing with the family going through a rough patch after Msando’s death.

Msando had been paying for his mother’s treatment and his murder left the family in a tight position.


Orengo mourns Mama Msando

Siaya Governor James Orengo was among the first to break the news of Mama Maria’s demise and sent his condolences to the family noting her death is a big blow.

"My heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and relatives of the late IEBC ICT Manager Chris Msando for the passing on of their family matriarch Mama Maria Msando.

"Mama had a magnetic personality and ability to care deeply for others that allowed her to cultivate many lasting relationships. May her soul Rest in Eternal Peace," Orengo stated.

The Msando family was thrust into the limelight after Chris Msando who was the ICT Manager at IEBC went missing a few days before the 2017 elections.


His lifeless body was found in a thicket bearing signs of torture before he was murdered.

A probe was launched into Msando’s death with commissioner Roselyn Akombe claiming that she was warned by the then IEBC CEO when she expressed interest in testifying.

In a statement complete with a screenshot of the email, Akombe revealed that the former IEBC CEO had warned her after she expressed interest in testifying in the murder of the commission’s former ICT boss who met his death barely a week to the 2017 general elections.


The email was direct to the point, warning her to keep off the matter.

"Do not attempt to rewrite history. Our silence is not your license," read the email.

Years after his death, the family is yet to know who killed Msando and why.
