Slain electoral commission manager Chris Msando will be buried on Saturday at his family’s home in Lifunga Kobiero, Siaya County.

The requiem mass will be held on Thursday at Consolata Shrine in Westlands.

MURDER

Mr Msando, who was the acting ICT director at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, went missing on July 28 and was found dead on July 31.

He had been in the company of a woman, Ms Carol Ngumbe, who was also killed and their remains discovered in a bush in Kikuyu, Kiambu County.

TORTURE

A post-mortem conducted by Chief Pathologist Johansen Oduor and family pathologist Dr Bessie Byakika revealed that he was tortured.

“He died from strangulation and had incisions on his right arm but the rest of his body was intact,” Dr Oduor said in the report.

HACKING

After the disputed election results, former presidential candidate Raila Odinga claimed that the deceased’s details were used to hack into the IEBC computer system to manipulate the results in favour of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“We have caught them. Hackers gained entry into the election database through Mr Msando’s account …,” Mr Odinga told a press conference on Wednesday.

PROTESTS

However, IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati said it was a botched attempt.

Mr Odinga has refused to accept the outcome, sparking protests across the country. Calm is now returning in the areas that witnessed violence.

He sees me and his kids as his divine assignment and gift from God
He prays for us daily and has awareness of the enemy
He listens to my opinions, observations and discoveries as thou they are a revelation
He loves unconditionally and so much more. Even though we didn’t start this way, the difference happened when we realised we need to put the THEORY in the bible to PRACTICAL,’ she posted.

Wambui Kamiru Collymore, widow of former Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore, has said every December, Bob made sure she had plums as she loved them very much.

In an Instagram post, Wambui said the person Bob was buying plums from has made sure they deliver the fruit now that Bob is not there to do so.

See the Instagram Post below:

Wambui has been posting snippets of her life with the former telecoms executive.

She recently celebrated his birthday where he would be turning 63 years old.

In his memory, his widow Wambui Collymore shared a picture and a touching message on social media to celebrate the man she spent almost five years together with.

The couple got married in April 2016 and stayed together until Collymore lost a long battle with blood cancer on the morning of July 1, 2019.

A short period before the cruel hands of death snatched him from her embrace, but also a period through which they also created memories worth cherishing and holding on to forever.

Collymore managed to keep his personal life so private that even in death little was written about his life before coming to Kenya.

KDF pilot killed in crash months before wedding

Like many ambitious young men, Lieutenant Adams Rhova had big plans for the New Year.

Exactly 30 days from today, he was due to reveal the date he would have walked down the aisle with the love of his life Sandra Kadzo.

An inspiration, a mentor, a role model and a philanthropist, many poor families in Kulesa village, Garsen, Tana River County, also looked forward to a good year, thanks to his alms.

But the dreams were shattered on Tuesday morning when Rhova, 30, perished in a Kenya Air Force plane crash inside Tsavo East National Park, some 15 kilometres from Voi town.

The aircraft, a Harbin Y-12 model that was being flown from the Kenya Air Force Moi Air Base, Nairobi, claimed the lives of three other military personnel who were on an undisclosed mission in Taita Taveta County.

When the Nation visited Kulesa village yesterday, pain was written all over the faces of his family, neighbours, friends, local leaders and even strangers. His mother, Yunia Hadulo, who received news of her son’s sudden death, was still in shock and could not talk.

A holiday

 

Just 20 days ago, the lieutenant had taken his entire family for a holiday in Malindi where he announced his future plans.

“He was planning to marry his fiancée, whom he introduced to the family early this year. He had many other big plans for Kulesa people and as matter of fact, he was the family’s mentor,” Alpha Rhova, Adams elder brother said.

Reached for comment, crestfallen Kadzo said she needed time to mourn her loss. “Kindly I’ve no strength to comment or say anything. The death has robbed me of my life too. He was my everything and this has happened when our relationship is at its peak,” she said amid tears.

Many remembered the lastborn in the family of three as a humble man who helped many poor families with school fees and ran campaigns against violent extremism.

In Kulesa, Rhova had a team of youth who provided him with intelligence on local security matters.

“He was [more] informed of the activities in the village than anyone else. He was a man of the people and his presence here elated many lives, both the youth and the elderly,” Alpha said.

Primary school

 

Born on December 12, 1990, Rhova went to Kulesa Primary School before proceeding to Garsen High School.

He later joined the University of Nairobi in 2012 for a Bachelor’s degree in Education, but dropped out in his second year to join the military.

In 2016, he secured a chance to train as a cadet and was taken for aviation training in South Africa where he graduated in 2017. He had only served the Air Force for three years.

Salama location chief Peter Jilo said Rhova was the only military man in his village and surrounding areas. “His death has broken my heart into many pieces; it feels like I’ve lost my own flesh and blood. Only God knows our pain,” he said, tears welling in his eyes.

A brave and humble person

The chief eulogised Rhova as “a son and a torch” that will take a lifetime to replace.

Wise man

Eric Bonny, a former schoolmate of Rhova’s and one of his best friends, is heartbroken.

Rhova carries lots of “secrets and wisdom” to the grave, he said.

“The accident has robbed us of a brave and humble person, who could create time to help anyone in time of need,” he said.

The Kenya Defence Forces is yet to release details and possible cause of the crash of a plane model that has been involved in several similar accidents in recent years.

Last August, a Harbin Y-12 craft came down at Dhobley Airstrip in Somalia.

The 10 occupants on board did not suffer any injuries but the aircraft was seriously damaged. The landing gear as well as the left-hand wing were mangled.

In 2014, one person was killed and 11 others injured when a plane of the the same model crashed shortly after taking off from El Wak airport in Mandera County.

In 2006, another military aircraft of the same model crashed on a hill in Marsabit, killing 14 people.

Last year, KDF announced plans to acquire three Italian-manufactured Spartan aircraft to replace the aged Harbin Y-12s. The first one was delivered late last year.
