Raped and Killed IEBC official was coming from a ‘massive interrogation’ meeting


More shocking details of the murder of Caroline Odinga, an IEBC deputy presiding officer at Miyare Primary School in Siaya county, continue to emerge after she was found dead near her home.

According to her relatives, Odinga, 39, she had left home to go and pick a few books for her son but she never returned.

She was later found about 50 meters from home with fatal wounds to her body on Saturday, August 19.

According to a relative, she was coming from a meeting which involved interrogation.

“I had previously overheard a conversation between her and another female presiding officer complaining about massive interrogation during their meeting with IEBC officials on Friday, August 18. That was the last time I saw her. Her phone was switched off and no other relative had heard from her. I believe she was abducted and killed but they dumped her near our home,” said Mathias Otieno, the deceased’s husband.

She suffered deep cuts to the face, neck and thighs. According to the Standard on Monday August 21, the body was moved to Sega Mission Mortuary as police launched investigations.

The Ugenya High School teacher was a temporary employee of the commission and reports suggest she was first raped by a gang before being brutally killed.
