Kenya: Election official tortured, killed days before vote

Source: Topeka Capital-Journal

"An official crucial to running Kenya’s presidential election next week has been found tortured and killed, the electoral commission chairman said Monday, as concerns grew that the East African nation’s vote again would face dangerous unrest. Wafula Chebukati helped identify the body of Christopher Msando at the city morgue and said he had injuries to the neck and head. Mssando had been reported missing a few days ago. … The main opposition group has charged that President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to rig the elections, an accusation the presidency has denied. The National Super Alliance called Msando’s death an assassination and an attempt to disrupt the elections." (07/31/17)
