Family of the woman whose body was found next to that of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission’s ICT manager Chris Msando, shared yesterday (Tuesday, August 1) the events leading to her death.
We have learnt that 21-year-old Carol Ngumbu had just completed her studies at the Kenya Medical Training College’s Karen campus two weeks ago and was set to graduate with a diploma in nutrition in December.
“My child was a very peaceful and calm person. This news has taken us by surprise and shock. I never expected such a thing to happen to my daughter.
When she told me on Friday that she was going out, I did not expect to receive this terrible news,” her mother Alice Nduruka said at her family home in Gachie in Kiambu as quoted in the Nation.
Late Ngumbu’s sister, Jedida Wanjiku, narrated her last encounter with her sister, who she said they were very close.
“We were together during the day on Friday (July 28, 2017) and had lunch in town. I then left to go and pick up some materials for my business and I later went to attend a function elsewhere.” She said.
Adding: “Carol called me at around 7pm and informed me that she was going out for drinks with Chris. She asked me to join them, saying they were not going to be out for a long time, but I declined, since I had to go back to see my young daughter who was not feeling well that day.”
She also told the paper that her sister had mentioned to her that Msando had promised to find her a job. That they had been friends since the year started.
Jedida sensed all was not well after hearing on TV that Msando had been found dead together with an unidentified woman. She tried to call her sister but in vain
Witnesses who discovered their bodies at Muguga Forest in Kikuyu, say that she was naked, save for her underwear, adding that she had no visible physical injuries.
