The Msando case is baffling. We know Msando and Ngumbu were intercepted in the CBD. They got separated probably almost immediately to focus on Msando himself. Msando’s vehicle has been captured by the better part of perhaps over an hour worth of CCTV footage in different parts of the CBD. I am sure there are fairly verbose phone transcripts that correspond to the apparent struggle that appeared to be described by CCTV footage of Msando on the phone with some entity or entities. Of course there is ultimately the discovery of two bodies in Muguga Forest Kikuyu area about 400M apart of Msando and Ngumbu. Msando’s Vehicle is found in Roysambu corresponding to the abode of a Msando friend or mistress or whatever from witness accounts. A strong possibility that there was a connection between the person associated with Msando in Roysambu where his car was found, and the killers, to explain the how Msando’s car specifically ended up in that spot to be discovered early Sunday morning
CCTV Footage Described To The Media:
There were approximately two mutually exclusive accounts broadly speaking, one of which is necessarily false.
This is the two occupant account in Msando’s car leading out of CBD via Uhuru Highway towards Mombasa Road with two occupants; a man and a woman. Ten minutes later Msando’s car is heading back towards CBD with only 1 occupant and caught joining Thika Highway at about 0247. The male occupant is of course Msando or one of the abductors. Neither version makes much sense. If Msando is the driver, what captivity is he in? If the driver is one of the abductors we have to accept the car merely went towards Belle Vue Area on the Mombasa road to drop off the fat lady in the middle of the abduction and that this specific abductor has certainly been to the Roysambu location where he parked the car, for h0w else would he get there absent of Msando?
This version has various sub-varieties but the gist of it is Msando at the wheel along with a fat lady in the front passenger seat with two younger men to the rear. This versi0n captures Msando driving in and out of the CBD as Msando is also busy appearing to be trying to resolve a situation on the phone with difficulty and ultimately Msando’s car disappears on Thika Highway presumably to Roysambu. This second narrative is much more plausible than the first account where there are 0nly two and subsequently only one occupant who proceeded to head to Roysambu to park the car there.
Totality of People and entities:
At minimum there were:
Abduction Team. Fat lady is presumptuously part of the abduction group to make any sense.
Msando and Ngumbu of course
From the various tales floating around it would appear that either Msando’s car headed to Thika Highway t0wards
Roysambu with the 4 occupants and supposedly followed to Roysambu by the abductors’ car or cars and off to the killing grounds, or else the transfer happened s0mewhere on Mombasa Road and off to the killing grounds.
Cause Of The Abductions:
There are generally roughly 3 broad possibilities:
Procurement/Tender/Business style disagreement. Essentially some kind of reap off.
Political: This particular motive to me based on the totality of events that transpired I find to be more unlikely. The activities described don’t appear consistent with a political liquidation. I doubt there would have been all that struggle on the phone by Msando etc,besides that I didn’t directly how so much useful it was to any one group . Mr. Msando was a manager and not a technician and the system wasn’t enslaved by Msando’s departures and in fact he was only an ICT Manager in the Interim.
Found this to be an infinitesimally possible as for example I seriously doubt the assassination team had even projected Ngumbu and Msando would hang out unless this occurrence was habitual . So I rule that out but especially rule out anything to do with Ngumbu. She appeared more to be pure collateral. Besides that if the grudge was indeed rooted in a love triangle and the ambush had occurred Msando would very quickly have concluded that it is most probable it was the end of him, and we all know just how aggravating this type of thing is for men, and from coverage it appeared to be the case that Msando had ample opportunity to flee, and if his calculation was imminent death, his behavior would have been significantly different and he almost certainly would have sprinted like a madman to save his skin. It appeared more the case that Msando was feverishly working on the assumption that as soon he resolved his issue on the phone he would be okay. If a man has gone to the extent of getting you abducted coz you slept with his woman or whatever you damn sure are more likely than not to wind up as a fatality. So very low probability.
To me this is the most likely scenario and is more consistent with somebody trying to fix in the middle of the night. I don’t think you would be scrambling on that phone to try to sway things one way or another politically in such a setting as the abduction in the middle of the night. Political answer is usually getting rubbed out end of story if it gets to abduction stage. This might have been IEBC related or not. The perpetrators appeared to have done timing to stir political conspiracy fever to make it even harder to figure out the truth.
Now the damning questions:
With all that CCTV footage and all the phone transcripts that the best they have at this point is no direct suspects? They just released Msando’s ex landlord. It appeared Msando did something to piss him off and he sent a threat with not much further ado. What I am wondering is what they are doing with the footage. Through careful analysis they would have been almost certainly catch the killers own car from the CCTV footage analysis. Or from shots of some of the people…for example they could have cropped out the face of these parties in the car to protect the rest of the evidence and publish the faces on the media and I am sure at least one of the people caught in the footage would have been identified especially that fat lady.
I am wondering to who the phone lines that were on the other side of the line with Msando were registered? I believe its almost impossible to identify the parties that were party to the communication with Msando without soon thereafter flushing out the motive and suspects.
I would have expected serious difficulties getting the story straight if this was indeed a politically motivated scenario evidence which I simply find scanty…or rather I find difficulty envisioning that political beneficiary scenario as applicable here…If mysteriously there is a good political rationale to it…then it is likely foggy clouds and the likes are and have been in effect…and if you are privy of such we are all ears…
What is your take? I would be interesting in hear other peoples’ insights for those who actually discuss and analyze issues opposed to the many who simply pepper the comment section because they simply must or trying to sound funny like primary kids…minus any insight…
