#KenyaElections: IEBC ICT manager Chris Musando found dead

Chris Msando the IT manager of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) who had gone missing on Friday has been found dead with just 8 days left before Kenya goes to the polls.

Chris Msando has been in charge of the Kenya’s computerized elections system and has been the focus of media attention with regards to the robustness of the IT system at the IEBC mainly borne out of anxiety from the failures recorded in the last elections with accusations that the system helped rigged the votes in favour of one political party.

Musando was one of the few people with knowledge on the whereabouts of the servers at IEBC.

"There was no doubt he was tortured and murdered," said IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati.

Police said on Monday that the bodies of Mr Msando and an unidentified woman had been found in the Kikuyu area on the outskirts of Nairobi and taken to the city mortuary.

Kenya 2017 elections is seen to be close race between incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta and leading opposition figure, Raila Odinga.
