Top Kenya elec­tion of­fi­cial found dead ahead of vote

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

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.
