Slain Independent Electoral Boundaries Commsiion (IEBC) official Daniel Musyoka is set to be buried today at his Muuani village home in Mwala sub-County, Machakos.
Musyoka was the Embakasi East constituency Returning Officer in the recently-held general election.
He disappeared mysteriously on August 11, two days after the election. At that time, he was on duty at the East African School of Aviation Tallying Centre in Nairobi.
IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati will lead the commission in bidding farewell to the late Musyoka.
Officials from the electoral body on Thursday held a peaceful demonstration in Nairobi protesting Musyoka’s murder.
They petitioned Parliament, the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji to ensure that the culprits are brought to book.
IEBC also eulogized Gichugu Returning Officer Geoffrey Gitobu who collapsed and died in Nanyuki, Laikipia County
Police officers have so far ruled out murder for political expediency in Gitobu’s sudden death and urged Kenyans to wait for postmortem which is set to be conducted on Wednesday.
