Former IEBC commissioner Roselyn Akombe has accused former IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba of threatening her after she offered to testify on Chris Msando’s murder.
Akombe through Twitter on Sunday posted a screenshot of a threatening e-mail message she allegedly received from Chiloba after announcing she was ready to testify before a Judicial Inquest into the killing of Msando.
“Dear Roselyn, do not attempt to rewrite history, our silence is not your silence, yours, Eza,” the email message from Chiloba read.
On Friday, Akombe claimed that Msando was led to the “slaughterhouse” by some of his colleagues at IEBC.
“Painful that instead on this day three years ago, your own colleagues led you to the slaughterhouse. Like Judas, they sold you for thirty cents. We will find justice for you, no matter how long it takes,” Akombe tweeted.
Msando, who was the manager of ICT at IEBC, 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. Three years later, his family and friends are still demanding justice.
Akombe says the threat from Chiloba “confirms my call for an inquiry. Kenyans deserve the truth. I owe it to you."
Akombe fled to the US eight days before the October 26th repeat presidential election from where she announced her resignation from IEBC. She claimed her life was in danger, and later returned to work for the United Nations in New York.
