Bitter Memories, Calls for ⚖Justice as Family Marks Msando's Anniversary

The family of slain electoral commission ICT manager Chris Msando has raised concerns over the slow pace of investigations into his death. Yesterday, relatives said they were almost losing hope of getting justice for their loved one. A memorial mass will be held to mark a year since his brutal murder. Many said they were yet to get over his death, just days before last year's General Election, held on August 8.

"The pain of losing Chris has increased as we prepare for his memorial service. Even the villagers are still mourning," said his cousin, Boniface Ouma. In her tribute during his burial on August 19, Ms Buyu said: “His killers might be on the run but will not hide forever. It is just a matter of time before they are caught.”

Some family members accused the Government of dragging its feet in conducting investigations. They accused his employer, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, of failing to prevent his death. "Msando was kind and social. We always had a good time whenever he came home," said Ouma. Angelina Juma, Msando’s step-mother, said: “It would have been better to sack him, if they felt he was standing in their way, but not kill him."
