Charles Owino reveals what ICT manager told him before his death

Police spokesman Charles Owino has disclosed that the late IEBC director Chris Msando told him...

Speaking on Tuesday morning during an interview on KTN, Owino divulged the deceased had reported to him directly that he had received death threats before he referred him to the Central Police.

He added that after reporting, Msando was contacted by police on two occasions to give more details on the threats but he said he was so busy and did not respond on the matter

"He reported to me and I referred him to Central Police station where he was directed to the criminal investigations directorate but he ended up being very busy such that he could not avail the details required," Mr Owino stated.

The police spokesman noted that he later called the ICT manager to follow up on the matter but he told him the threats had toned down.

Mr Owino also made it clear that the hands of the deceased were not chopped off as earlier claimed by a section of the public.

Reports emerged that the ICT manager had informed that police that his life was in danger before his disappearance on Friday.

After the disappearance, his car was traced to Roysambu before it was towed to Kasarani police station.

His body would later be found in Kikuyu, along Waiyaki way and was taken to City Mortuary then later moved to Lee Funeral home after the family identified him.

Police have commenced investigations and the United State has offered to help.
