The widow of murdered IEBC manager Chris Msando has appealed for help in taking care of her children.
Msando, who was acting ICT manager of the electoral agency, was found dead on July 29 amid preparations for the August 8, 2017general election.
Government pathologist Johansen Oduor reported that he died from strangulation and had incisions on his right arm but that the rest of his body was intact.
Msando’s widow Eva Buyu made her plea on Wednesday in a moving letter to Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o who read it as Kenya Human Rights Commission marked 25 years of operations at a Nairobi hotel.
She wants “any job at any organization” in order to educate her children.
In the letter, Buyu complains that the IEB has abandoned the family.
“I don’t want to submit myself to another man in order to feed my children. I will appreciate any decent job that will enable me cater for my family,'” she said.
In her tribute to Msando during at the funeral on August 19 last year, Buyu noted he loved and cherished his family.
She said her husband’s killers might be on the run but will not hide forever as it is just a matter of time before they are caught. During Msando’s requiem mass, Eva and her children eulogized the IEBC ICT manager as the best man in the world.
“KENYANS LET JUSTICE BE DONE. LOOK AT MY YOUNG CHILDREN, THE FIRST BORN IS 10 YEARS OLD AND THE LAST BORN IS TWO YEARS OLD.
LET JUSTICE BE OUR SHIELD AND DEFENDER. VENGEANCE IS OF THE LORD AND WE BELIEVE GOD WILL FIGHT FOR US. CHRIS’ DEATH WILL NOT GO IN VAIN, WE HAVE REFUSED.I KNOW MSANDO’S KILLERS ARE WATCHING THIS. MAY YOU NOT HAVE PEACE. MUNGU ATATUPIGANIA. MSANDO’S DEATH WILL NOT GO IN VAIN…” SAID EVA BUYA, MSANDO’S WIFE BEFORE SHE READ HER TRIBUTE TO HER HUSBAND.
