An official responsible for running Kenya’s presidential election was tortured and killed just days ahead of the country’s next election, the country’s electoral commission chairman said Monday. Christopher Msando managed information-technology systems at the electoral commission, the Associated Press reports. He was found with injuries to the neck and head after being reported missing days earlier. The commission chairman, Wafula Chebukati, helped identify Msando’s body at the Nairobi city morgue. “This is a brutal murder of our employee and we are demanding to know who killed him and why,” Chebukati said. “We are demanding government provide security to all IEBC [electoral commission] staff.”
