Detectives have arrested four suspects in connection with the murder of IEBC official Daniel Mbolu Musyoka whose body was found dumped in Oloitoktok, Kajiado County in August.
Musyoka, who was the Returning Officer for Embakasi East Constituency, went missing from the East Africa School of Aviation Tallying Centre during the August 9th general election before his lifeless body was found by herders in a river close to the Kilombero forest in Oloitoktok.
The suspects were apprehended after detectives tracked down Musyoka’s mobile phone to a woman in Kisii town, who said she has been using it for a month. The woman told police she was sold the phone and led them to the suspects.
One of the suspects said he picked up the phone on Mombasa Road on August 14th, three days after the Musyoka went missing. He told police that he had no idea the phone belonged to the slain IEBC official.
The suspect then took the phone to a repair shop in Nairobi CBD, where it was formatted and later sold to a woman in Kisii County. Police said they will turn the woman into a witness.
The four suspects, who include mobile phone repair professionals from downtown Nairobi, are being held at Embakasi police station pending further investigation and arraignment.
An autopsy conducted on Musyoka’s body on August 18th could not determine the cause of his death. Pathologists led by Dr. Dorothy Njeru said the murder was done in a 'professional manner'.
"We cannot ascertain the cause of death. No physical injuries point to the cause of death. We have collected samples from the body for further forensic analysis in a government laboratory," said Dr. Njeru.
These guys are just either small thieves who picked up the phone from the dead body or they actually picked it up on some road after being thrown away by Kinoti guys. Kinoti knows the killers. Stop arresting innocent people.
For the thought that these guys got hold of the deceased, looked for a car and transported the deceased to some forest in Ngong just to steal a phone cannot hard up.
This is BS! They ain’t the murder suspects and the investigators in this heinous crime are acting like Idiots! Hold the right people accountable. This are just hustler guys who found the phone & due to poverty in this country, he decided to sell it!
Afandi Ibrahim seems to have started on negative note.How are they going to prosecute that murder case without conclusive pathology report?Why not hire an independent pathologist to do a second autopsy?Were poison tests done on the body if it had no physical injuries or strangulation?Njeru seems to have acted like expired Pathologist Kaviti who gave a conflicting report on how Dr Ouko torched and then shot himself.
The poor man will always die at the expense of the rich,reknown fellow who did the act.The police knwo he culprits well but somebody has to bear the budden.
No wonder the elections were conducted is a most Fraudulent manner Azimio still complaining. Why did IEBC not stop the elections till murder case is solved. I think some innocent folks on the line .
Smoke and mirrors! I bet these are not the killers! Just gullible fools who found a phone left in the streets by the killers! Waste of time and public money!
