Earlier today, during the requiem mass of former IEBC ICT manager, Chris Msando, his widow gave a bitter eulogy. Chris Msando went missing and was later found murdered in a thicket in Kikuyu, Kiambu County.

The mass was held at the Consolata Shrine in Nairobi and most of the deceased's colleagues from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) were present.

'I do not know where to start. I only have to ask why? Why? Why?' she began.

In her words, she described Mr. Msando as a charming man who was good at making friends and convincing people.

Ms. Eva Elsa Auma Buyu shared how her late husband had witnessed the birth of all their children and of the love they shared for 12 years.

In a moment of sorrow, she demanded that his killers be brought to justice by the government.

'Are you happy? Because I know you are watching! May you[the killers] not have peace. And vengeance is of the Lord. Na Mungu atatupigania. Wakenya tusimame imara. Chris's death will not go in vain. Tumekataa.'

She added that her late husband now saw that everybody voted seamlessly and nobody voted manually during the just concluded General Election.
She also painfully noted how wrong his murder was. 'Look at the babies..my oldest is 10.'

She led the congregation in singing a verse of the national anthem, 'Justice be our shield and defender.'
Eva also sang the hymn, 'In the sweet by and by' and said that she will once again meet her husband.

Immediately after his death, the government had promised to bring to account those involved. Investigative help was even offered from the FBI and England's Scotland Yard. It is unclear how far the investigations have reached.
