For more than an hour Chris Msando drove within and outside the central business district before CCTV cameras lost him on the Thika superhighway.
Those who have watched video footage captured by the Integrated Control Communication Centre (I3C) based at Jogoo House say the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) ICT manager may have been in captivity.
It was, however, not clear whether the three occupants in his car, a woman and two men, were his captors.
The woman donning yellow attire was described as heavy-set.
Speaking on phone throughout the drive and until the car disappeared along the Thika superhighway at around 3am, the woman is in the front passenger seat while the men, said to be ‘young’, sat in the back.

His car is captured exiting the CBD through Harambee Avenue a few minutes to 2am and cruising along Mombasa Road.
The ICT manager drives up to Mlolongo, then he is seen returning to the city centre. After a few metres the car stops.
Msando steps out and he is captured speaking on a phone. The female occupant comes out of the car and stands next to the IEBC manager.
“It appears the man (Msando) was under duress. He seems to have been pleading on the phone. After the brief conversation, he goes back to the car and continues driving slowly,” said a source.
It heads to the Globe Cinema roundabout up to Museum Hill through Kipande Road.
“A few minutes later, it is captured along Forest Road where it stops, then drives on,” said the source.
Msando joins the Thika superhighway and takes Kiambu Road. He makes a U-turn and is seen driving back to town.
“On reaching Muthaiga roundabout, he drives towards Thika. This is around 3 am and the car disappears from CCTV cameras before reaching the GSU headquarters,” said the source.
Before Msando’s body was found lying at the City Mortuary, detectives tracing his whereabouts had already pulled out the footage capturing his movement
“The investigators visited the communications centre based at Jogoo House, studied the footage, and retrieved the tape,” said an officer.
The slain ICT manager’s family, However, says Musando’s immediate boss James Muhati betrayed him
According to them, he was the last person to be with the diseased before he disappeared.
In May, Msando replaced the ICT Director for a month after Mr Muhati was accused of refusing to cooperate with auditors who wanted access to IEBC ICT systems.
The decision to suspend Mr Muhati and replace him with Msando was arrived at during a plenary session chaired by the IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati.
