Unless you live in a hole, you have heard about the unfortunate death of Chris Msando.

The IEBC Manager of ICT Chris Msando, who went missing on Friday, was been found dead in Kikuyu, in the outskirts of Nairobi on Saturday morning and taken to City Mortuary. However, it was only on Monday that it was identified by relatives and colleagues before being transferred to Lee Funeral Home.

The woman who was found killed together with him has also been identified.

Her name is Caro Ngumbu, 21, from Gachie, Kiambu County, and had just completed her studies at the Kenya Medical Training College, Karen Campus.

Her mother Alice Nduruka on Tuesday told the Nation that Caro was awaiting graduation this December.

Ms Nduruka described her daughter as a “very calm and peaceful child”. She continued;

“When she told me she was going out on Friday I did not expect could receive such news,”

This is not something that could have happened to my daughter because she is such a good person.”

Caro’s sister Jedida Wanjiku said they last talked on phone at around 7pm when she (Caro) told her she was going to have a few drinks with Mr Msando.

Caro said she would be home after the drink date, Jedida said. Caro and Mr Msando, the sister said, had been friends for months.

Jedida said she realized her sister was missing on Saturday after Caro’s male friends called looking for her but her phone was off. She says.

“Yesterday (Monday) after seeing the news on TV. I immediately knew it was my sister because she had last gone hanging out with Chris but I hadn’t heard from her.”

In the company of her friends, she left for City Mortuary where the bodies had been taken by police.

“We did not even inform our parents before going,” she said.

“At the mortuary, I was scared and I let my two friends go inside while I stayed outside. I shortly heard my friend scream and I knew it was her.”

Our hearts go out to all involved in the incident.
