ODPP following up investigations into death of IEBC officer

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) says it is following up on investigations into the death of Embakasi East constituency returning officer Daniel Mbolu Musyoka.

In a statement Tuesday, the ODPP, headed by Noordin Haji, noted that it was following up the case shortly after the police recovered the body in a thicket in Loitoktok, Kajiado County.

During the Friday evening presser at Bomas, IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati revealed Musyoka went missing while on duty at the East African School of Aviation Tallying Center and reported the matter to Embakasi Police Station Occurrence Book (OB) number 24/11/08/22.

According to Chebukati, the RO was escorted from his residence at around 9.45 am Thursday to the tallying centre by his bodyguard where he excused himself to make a telephone call.

He however did not return to the office.

According to Loitoktok Sub-county Poloice Commandant (OCPD) Kipruto Ruto , his body was discovered by herders on Monday night in a river close to the Kilombero forest in Oloitoktok.

His sisters Mary Mwikali and Ann Mboya identified his body at the Loitokitok sub-county mortuary.

The killers and motive are yet to be established though the pathologists will Wednesday examine his body.

On Tuesday, the Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) called on authorities to expedite investigations surrounding his death with Law Society of Kenya (LSK) also calling on Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to deploy the best investigative resources to investigate the mysterious death.

Addressing the press, LSK president Eric Theuri challenged Mutyambai to expedite the probe to unravel those responsible for the cruel act.

Theuri said LSK will be following up on the investigations to ensure full accountability for the senseless and heinous death.

Theuri also wants Mutyambai to re-affirm all IEBC officials of their safety, and that they will not be victimized for their service.
