An autopsy on the body of Christopher Msando, the man in charge of Kenya’s electronic voting system, has revealed that he was tortured and strangled to death.
Mr Msanda was reported missing on Friday and his body was discovered in a city mortuary three days later.
Deep scratches were found on his back, indicating the body was either dragged on a rough surface or scratched, according to the report.
The autopsy was performed by Kenya’s chief government pathologist and a family pathologist.
A 21-year-old student, Carol Ngumbu, died along with Mr Msando and an autopsy is due to be performed on her body today
Mr Msando’s family has urged the Kenyan authorities to accept the offer of help by the US and the UK governments to investigate the murder.
In a statement, the family calls upon Kenyans to be mindful of what they are posting on social media during their time of mourning, given that photos of the deceased are being circulated on social media.
