The body of the missing Embakasi East Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) returning officer Daniel Mbolu Musyoka has been found in Kajiado.
Last evening, police officers from Loitoktok, Kajiado South sub-county were alerted over the presence of the body of a middle-aged man in the forest.
According to Loitok tok police boss Kipruto Ruto, the body was identified by his sisters Mary Mwikali and Ann Mboya at the Loitokitok sub-county mortuary.
53-year-old Musyoka was serving as returning officer at Embakasi East polling station in Nairobi County.
According to Ruto, the middle-aged male body was discovered early yesterday in Kilombero forest, at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro by herders.
The gruesome find was made by herders. The body was reportedly dumped into the valley of a dry seasonal river. The area is a notorious dumping site for murder victims.
The police boss said the body was naked, though the man’s clothes — a tracksuit and a Maasai shuka — were found at the edge of the valley.
There were visible signs of struggle and torture on the victim’s body.
