Msando's final movements: Slain electoral agency manager Chris Msando was picked up from around Mater Hospital in Nairobi’s South B on the night he died in July. Msando was last captured driving his car towards the estate before someone else drove it out and eventually to Thika Road, where it was finally discovered two days later. The former Information and Communication Technology manager at the IEBC was tortured and killed early Saturday, July 29, days before the August 8 General Election. Investigations by KTN have also found it was in South B that Msando separated with Carol Ngumbu, the lady he was last seen with. Carol's body would be found dumped about a kilometre from where the corpse of Msando was discovered a few hours after the killing. Post-mortem examination of the 21-year-old’s body confirmed she was strangled to death and some of her teeth pulled out.

Evidence of torture marks on his body confirmed the killers were up to a lot more than eliminating him. His mother shared with KTN News the pain of losing her last-born son in the most excruciating way, wishing that the killers should just have shot him dead if all they wanted was his life. “I want to know who killed my son, I will tear that person apart with my own teeth,” said the sobbing Maria, 72. It all started as an ordinary Friday evening when Msando left his office at Anniversary Towers, before entering a pub on the ground floor of the same building. Before long, he walked to another nearby nightclub where he would be joined by Carol and another man – fitting the description of the man who dumped his car. Workers at the club told the police that Msando left with Carol some 20 minutes past 2am that night, minutes after the gentleman walked out. Four minutes later, his vehicle was seen leaving the city centre with a lady wearing a red top, and a description that fitted Carol, a medical student. It then ...
