Moses Kuria, the Gatundu South MP on Sunday, January 19, suffered a major blow after the state reportedly withdrew his security following his intended exposé on the gruesome murder of the late Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) former staffer Chris Msando.
Taking to his Facebook account, the lawmaker had promised to shed more light on the matter by holding a presser on Monday, January 20, after claiming that he was tired of being linked to the murder.
“I am sick and tired of people connecting me to the murder of Chris Msando. I will address the media on Monday, January 20, 2020, at 3p.m. on this issue,” he shared on Saturday, January 18.
According to a report by Daily Nation, the legislator’s security was recalled a few hours after the post was shared leaving him and his team perturbed.
Quoting some of his allies, the publication noted that all of the security personnel save for one had been recalled to Security of Government Business Unit for redeployment.
“He had six bodyguards from GSU, AP and general duty officers.
“All of them have been recalled apart from one, a GSU officer. They were expected to report to the Security of Government Business Unit for redeployment today (Sunday),” stated the source.
Msando’s body was found on Saturday, September 30, 2017, strangled just days to the country’s elections that year.
According to a postmortem examination that was later published, Chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor disclosed that the former official also had incisions on his right arm.
Msando’s body was found lying next to that of 21-year-old Carol Ngumbu at Muguga Forest in Kikuyu.
“He died from strangulation and he also had incisions on his right arm, but the rest of the body was intact,” stated Oduor at the time.
