    4 arrested for the death of Embakasi East IEBC officer, Daniel Musyoka.

    Published on

    On October 19, four individuals were arrested in relation to the murder of IEBC official Daniel Musyoka.

    Before he passed away, Musyoka worked as the Embakasi East Constituency Returning Officer during the August General Election. This position was his last public duty.

    According to the reports, the police were able to trace the mobile phone belonging to the dead to Kisii, where it had been bought by a lady.

    The officials also noted that the cellphone had been reset prior to selling. The lady’s duration of phone usage was leveraged to make her a witness.

    On August 11, just three days after Kenyans went to the polls, the IEBC official went missing.

    On August 15th, Musyoka’s corpse was found in the Amboseli Park forest.

    According to the investigations conducted at the time, Musyoka’s corpse was taken from another location and thrown in the forest. The corpse showed clear traces of torture.

    After Musyoka’s death, IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati released a statement in which he said that the murderers were angered by Musyoka’s reluctance to sacrifice his integrity.

    The cause of death was first unknown, but an autopsy determined that the victim had been strangled.
