, NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 28 – A suspect in the murder of former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission ICT Manager, Chris Msando, was Monday arraigned at the Milimani Law Courts.
Andrew Kipkoech Rono was arrested on July 15 on allegations that he had sent a threatening message to Msando.
According to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, a team of investigators had obtained mobile data which is now undergoing forensic examinations and could lead to more arrests.
“Prosecution has obtained mobile data now undergoing forensic examinations and could lead to the arrest of more suspects,” Catherine Mwaniki, a senior State Prosecutor said in court.
The prosecution objected to the release of the suspect on bail citing the possibility of interference with ongoing investigations.
Rono will be held at Muthaiga Police Station until Monday next week when he appears again in court.
Msando’s body was discovered at the City Mortuary on July 31, two days after he went missing.
He was laid to rest on August 19 at his Lifunga Kobiero village home in Ugenya, Siaya County.
