Embakasi East Constituency returning officer Daniel Musyoka has gone missing.
Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati on Friday 12th August 2022 said the Returning Officer went missing after stepping out of the Constituency Tallying Centre to pick up a call from an unknown individual at about 9 pm on Thursday.
On his briefings, Chebukati said that Mr. Daniel Musyoka was last seen at the East African School of Aviation tallying center where his bodyguard had escorted him.
“Reports received by the commission indicate that at around 9 am on Thursday, August 11, Mr. Musyoka was escorted from his house to the tallying center by his bodyguard,” he said.
At around 9:45 am, it is reported that he excused himself to go and pick up a phone call but did not return back to the office.
Efforts to reach him by his family and the commission have not been successful.
“The commission is deeply concerned about this unfortunate incident and calls upon the relevant security agencies to speeding investigate this matter,” Chebukati said.
Mr. Musyoka’s disappearance case has since been reported at the Embakasi Police station under the OB number-24/11/08/2022 and his responsibilities were handed over to his deputy as investigations into his whereabouts continue.
