"Painful Indeed " Fresh Details Emerge on Daniel Musyoka's Murder

According to preliminary investigations, Embakasi East Returning Officer Daniel Musyoka may have been murdered on Monday evening or early Tuesday morning.

Kipruto Ruto, the Oloitokitok police chief, told the media on Tuesday, August 17, that Musyoka, whose body was discovered yesterday, had fresh wounds, indicating that the incident occurred hours before he was discovered.

The former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) official also had wounds in his arm, indicating a struggle with the killers, according to the police.

He stated that officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) searched the crime scene and collected evidence for further examination.

"When the police arrived, we discovered that it was a male body that was still fresh," he explained.

Furthermore, based on the thicket where the body was discovered, police believe the killers were familiar with the area.

Ruto stated that it would have been difficult for newcomers to navigate the forest, particularly in the morning.

A resident who discovered the late Musyoka's body agreed. The body of the IEBC official was discovered in a seasonal river, according to the herder.

"He was discovered with his arms and legs folded, as well as bruises on his arms. This is not the first time something like this has occurred here. We found him in the hole "stated the herder

Musyoka's body will be postmortem today, and police will wait for the results before ramping up their investigation.

On Friday, August 12, IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati made Musyoka's disappearance public.

Chebukati revealed at the time that Musyoka went missing on August 11, around 9:45 a.m., after he excused himself to make a phone call.
