Roselyn Akombe Challenges DCI Over Msando's Murder

DCI challenged by Dr Roselyn Akombe over Chris Msando's brutal murder

Former IEBC Commissioner Dr Roselyn Akombe

Former IEBC Commissioner Dr Roselyn Akombe challenged the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to open a public inquest into the murder of Chris Msando.

Dr Akombe called on the DCI to look into the matter after the sleuths body announced they were going to open an inquest into the death of the second Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru on Monday.

Public Inquest

"Looking forward to the DCI requesting a public inquest into the brutal torture and murder of my @IEBCKenya colleague Chris Msando and Ms Ngumbu. I confirm my availability to be interviewed under oath," She tweeted.

The slain Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission ICT manager was strangled, a post-mortem examination conducted revealed.

Chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor said: “He died from strangulation and he also had incisions on his right arm, but the rest of the body was intact.”

Msando's brother, Peter Msando, had asked the police to expedite the case, urging them to accept the help of the FBI and Scotland Yard if that would help conclude the case speedily.

After the death of Msando, things got rocky at the IEBC with the agency conducting a disputed election which led to the Presidential poll being nullified by the Supreme Court.

Abrupt Resignation

Dr Akombe announced her resignation from New York, where she was based as she worked for the UN before she took the IEBC job.

In her statement, Dr Akombe said that the October 26 repeat election, as planned, could not meet the basic expectations of credibility and fairness.

She cited attacks on IEBC staff as they trained in Kisumu, Siaya and Homa Bay, saying the environment under which the repeat was set to be held had been poisoned.
