Why it Might Take Longer for DCI to Apprehend the Killers of the IEBC Official

Police are still looking for new clues in the murder of a member of the electoral commission.

Investigators claim the investigation into Daniel Musyoka's death has stalled days after it began, forcing them to start over. The investigating team comprises officers from the Embakasi DCI, Special Service Unit, Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau, as well as their homicide colleagues.

The Returning Officer for Embakasi East for the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission was Musyoka. On August 11, he vanished from the East Africa School of Aviation tallying center, and his body was discovered days later, dumped in Loitokitok, near the boundary between Kenya and Tanzania. The lack of recent CCTV footage is one of the reasons the team hasn't made any headway.

Musyoka was last seen leaving an entertainment venue in Nairobi's Tassia Estate, and the detectives are trying to determine where he went after that. The most recent video the police were able to secure was taken over a week ago and showed Musyoka wandering by herself before speaking to a boda boda rider. It looked like he was carrying a paper bag.

Due to the poor quality of the video, attempts by the DCI forensic investigators to freeze the images and determine what Musyoka was holding also came up empty-handed. Also, investigators haven't figured out who Musyoka was talking to on the phone when he went missing.

The team is confident that the IEBC employee called a number other than his regular one, which is known to his family and friends. According to a source, DCI data analysts have discovered that Musyoka's primary phone was off when he left the tallying center.

The official, who asked to remain anonymous, stated, "The only chance is if we can discover the phone number he was using to connect."

None of the seven individuals who have so far furnished police with statements have offered any leads.

These people consist of security personnel and a housemate of Musyoka's acquaintance.

Bruno Shioso, spokesman for the National Police Service, is optimistic that investigators will solve the case. He stated, "The investigations are proceeding and we will locate the killers of Musyoka."
