In a statement on Thursday, IEBC said Brian Silale, a Constituency Administrative Assistant for Tiaty Constituency Office was murdered in the ongoing Kapedo attacks.

His body was found among others who lost their lives in the attacks that have marred the hostile region.

"He was later murdered under unclear circumstances and the remains of his body together with other bodies were recovered on Wednesday, January 20 at Arabal Sub-location," the statement read.

The Kapedo attacks were condemned by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i terming them as "premeditated cold-blooded, heinous attack''.

CS Matiang'i on Monday stated that preliminary investigations disclosed that the attackers targetted GSU Deputy Operations Director, Emadau Temako who died after he was ambushed.

"It is a clear case of murder. There was no conflict. It was a premeditated ambush that was targeting our deputy director of operations at the General Service Unit. We must stop pretending and put things candidly," Matiang’i said.
