The family of the late returning officer of Embakasi East constituency Daniel Musyoka now says their kin refused to take bribe leading to his murder.
The family, led by his brother-in-law Jackson Muimi and sister Ann Mbolu described their kin as a God-fearing person.
They said Musyoka declined to take a bribe from his tormentors leading to his unfortunate death.
“We know who Daniel is, he cannot be compromised by anyone. I suspect that someone must have attempted to bribe him to change the numbers in the just-concluded election, and he refused,” said Muimi.
They said Musyoka was a humble and peaceful person who hardly rattled anyone.
The sister, Mbolu, said they depended on Musyoka as family on various issues adding that is death is a blow to them.
“He is the most honest person we have in the family. I am married in Machakos and Musyoka was also able to provide for my husband and me whenever we were in need... He had no enemies, everywhere,” she said.
“We are just praying to God to guide the family he has left behind. He was the only breadwinner in the entire family.”
Musyoka went missing on August 11 from the East African School of Aviation tallying centre. He is believed to have disappeared at 9: 45 am.
He was found dead at a thicket in Mariko, Loikitoktok, in Kajiado county.
Police who visited the scene said he seemed to have been tortured to death.
The family of the deceased and police from Embakasi visited the mortuary and identified the body.
While announcing his missing, IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati said they had tried to reach him but to no avail.
"Musyokas family and the Commission have been trying to reach him without success. A report of a missing person has been made at Embakasi police station," Chebukati said.
