3 people arrested in Msando murder case
Police arrest 3 suspects hours after Uhuru ordered for speedy investigations
The arrests come barely hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered "speedy investigations" into the murder of Msando along with another woman, Carol Ngumbu.
President Kenyatta said his government was “deeply shocked and saddened” by the two killings.
“Chris was a man who gave himself to the service of his country, and its institutions,” Kenyatta said in a statement.
The President also cautioned Kenyans against speculating on the cause of the deaths and instead let the relevant authorities conduct their investigations.
"It is appropriate, then, to let those institutions handle the investigation, the better to bring the doers of this foul deed to justice. 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,” the President warned.
“Let us respect his (Chris’) life, his achievements, and his memory by allowing these investigations to proceed calmly. The Republic must secure the lives, the property, and the safety of its people -and it will.”
The police released a statement revealing a chronological order of Msando's last moments before his body found in Maguga Forest, Kikuyu in Kiambu County.
In a statement, police said Msando was on Friday night spotted at Club 7 along Koinange Street with Ms Ngumbu and another man.
The waiter at the club told the police that the man left earlier but Msando and Ngumbu left at around 1am.
Police spokesman George Kinoti said Msando's vehicle, a Land Rover Discovery registration number KCB 262Q, was thereafter captured by highway surveillance cameras at the Uhuru Highway/Haile Selassie Avenue roundabout at 2.24am and later at the Bunyala Road/Uhuru Highway roundabout heading towards Mombasa Road.
The car had two occupants - a male and a female, presumably Msando and Ngumbu.
However at 2.34am, the car was captured by cameras heading towards Nyayo Stadium, only the male driver was in the vehicle.
The vehicle was then last seen along the Ring Road Ngara/Juja Road intersection heading towards Thika Road at 2.47am, when it vanished from police monitors.
