Slain Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) ICT Manager Chris Msando has been given an integrity award posthumously.

Msando’s award was presented to his widow and son at the International Electoral Awards in Ghana.

The former ICT manager went missing on July 30, 2017 and his body was later found dumped at Muguga Forest and taken to city mortuary.

His murder is still unresolved months later but his family received an international integrity award on his behalf eliciting a comment from former IEBC commissioner Roselyne Akombe.

Akombe wrote, “As they say, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown..”- #RIPMsando. Thanks ICPS and #Ghana for keeping Msando’s legacy alive.”

Palestine and Kenya won the Electoral Conflict Management Award while Afghanistan and Mexico bagged the Gender Equality Award at the International Electoral Awards.

Deputy President William Ruto says he will exit the political stage within the next 10 years when his political time lapses.

Speaking at Kitale ASK Showground on Friday during a retirement ceremony for Pentecostal Evangelistic Fellowship of Africa Bishop Samuel Thiongo, Dr Ruto said that politicians should not overstay in power because there’s life after politics.

The Deputy President also urged leaders to focus their energies on addressing challenges facing Kenyans.

“I have been in this political scene for a while now and I learned a lot of things. I will mentor the youth so that they can understand because even as we speak I have also started to get ready for it and in the next 10 years I will retire and leave the youth to take over,” said Ruto.
