Top Kenya election official found dead ahead of vote
An official charged with overseeing IT in Kenya’s election commission was found dead just over a week before the country goes to the polls, the commission’s chairman said yesterday. The body of Chris Msando, a top information technology manager at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), has been identified at the city morgue, according to IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati. “There was no doubt he was tortured and murdered. The only question in our mind is who (killed him) and why he was killed a few days to elections,” Chebukati told reporters.
