African culture demands that you respect the dead. Though it varies in different communities, it is always safer to keep your comments to yourself until you confirm all facts. Since early this week, we have extensively covered the untimely disappearance of the IEBC ICT Manager and the whole saga in a series of posts here.

The case is also complicated because nobody is really certain if it was a premeditated event and the benefactor of it.

In a chilling twist, a woman was carried away by the political hullabaloo and mystery that surrounded the torture and death of Mr. Chris Musando. Just like everyone else, conversations were about unfounded claims on who the death squad might be and so forth.

However, when news broke on the identity of the woman who was found with the deceased, all hell broke loose. The woman discovered that the 21-year-old student was her niece.

All of a sudden, she realized that the comments that she had made were out of context and insensitive to all concerned.

We, the Daily Updates team, wish to urge all Kenyans to maintain calm during this election period and desist from spreading unconfirmed and malicious rumors.

There are people somewhere are in anguish to have lost a parent, a brother, a sister or a friend. We also wish to send our heartfelt condolences to the family of both victims and hope for speedy investigations into the matter.


We will not publish the name of the woman for the sake of privacy of our sources.
