Nyamita joins Msando family in first anniversary of his death, calls for justice

Hon. Nyamita consoles with Chris Msando’s mother

By Hon. Mark Ogolla Nyamita

We joined the family of the late Mr. Christopher Chege Msando in marking the first anniversary since the worrisome murder of a man who came forth as a solid symbol of electoral integrity.

In the company of my colleagues Honourables Babu Owino, Samwel Atandi, Edwin Sifuna, Geoffrey Osotsi and Anthony Oluoch we were privileged to be part of the Memorial Service at Christ is the King Church in Embakasi East Constituency.

In unison, we urged the government to ameliorate this painful loss, to the family and to the country, by bringing to book the killers of Mr. Chris Chege Msando.

We further committed ourselves to support the family in pursuing justice through the courts of law.

It’s depressing that one year down the line, the murder of this hero remains unresolved yet, adding onto the long list of others before it.

The government’s investigative agencies need to move with speed, in the spirit of the stable political environment, to work backwards and net the culprits of this high profile, yet heinous termination of the life of a man whose dedication to duty was full of uncompromising integrity.

Let it be known that justice to Msando is justice to Kenya and to all.
