Police Finally Reveal Fresh Evidence on What Was Found Besides The Body of Slain IEBC Official

The election official who went missing last Thursday was undoubtedly held captive prior to his murder, as his body had not deteriorated and remained entire despite being recovered in an animal passage in the forest on Monday.

Daniel Mbolu Musyoka, 53, disappeared after leaving the Embakasi East tallying centre ,the East Africa School of Aviation, on Thursday evening to take a phone call.

He was going to announce the results of the Embakasi East races for member of the National Assembly and member of the county assembly.

At 9:40 a.m., according to witnesses, he left the tallying center to take a phone call before vanishing. The last time he was seen, he was leaving the tallying center and headed towards the neighboring bus station.

Herders discovered Musyoka's body on the bed of a dry seasonal river in Kilombero Forest, at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The body was unclothed, but a track suit and Maasai shuka were nearby. The neck of the deceased revealed fresh bruising, indicating possible strangling. The lower limbs were swelled, but no injuries were obvious.

However, according to Loitokitok Police Commander Shadrack Kiprop Rutto, the body appeared to be fresh, indicating that Musyoka was recently killed.

"We assume that the deceased was held by his tormentors for a few days following his disappearance, with the intention of killing him later. "Had the body been discarded on the day he went missing, it would have decomposed or been devoured by wild creatures," Mr. Kiprop explained.
