Roselyn Akombe says she is ready to fly back to the country to testify in the murder case of former IEBC ICT manager Chris Msando.
Msando was found dead in Muguga Forest in Kikuyu, Kiambu County on July 31st, 2017, a day after he was allegedly abducted in Nairobi by unknown people.
His mutilated body was found together with that of 21-year-old Carol Ngumbu, with postmortem examination revealing he was strangled to death. His abduction and murder came a week before the August 8th, 2017 general election in which he would have played a key role.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Akombe asked Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi to take up the case due to public interest, adding that she is available to be a witness.
“On this anniversary of my colleague Msando’s murder, could you take this case up in the public’s interest? As I have said in the past, I am ready to testify,” Akombe tweeted.
Akombe fled to the US ahead of the 2017 repeat presidential election citing fears for her life and resigned from IEBC, where she served as a commissioner.
She later resumed her previous job at the United Nations’ Political Affairs Department.
