Police deny any connection to Kitale businessman’s disappearance
A woman has linked police to the disappearance of boyfriend Idd Musa Wekesa last week in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County.
Cynthia Wanjiru, believes police are behind her boyfriend’s disappearance on September 14, 2021. Wekesa, 30, disappeared after leaving his home at a residence in Kibomet to buy corn flour in a nearby store.
Ms. Wanjiru said that on the day of the incident, her lover left home to buy flour from the store to cook dinner, but did not return. According to Wanjiru, Wekesa wore a vest, shorts and scandal. Wanjiru said the two had been in the house all day long, when around 8 p.m. he went to the store.
“After 30 minutes I called him, but his phone was off. I contacted his family but they don’t know where he is,” Wanjiru told Standard.
But the county commander, Jacinta Wesonga, called the allegations baseless. Wesonga refuted Wanjiru’s claims that the police are responsible for Wekesa’s disappearance.
“There is no basis for Kenyans to suspect the police when a person living a double life goes missing. It is dishonest for people to involve the police when a person goes missing,” Wesonga told The Standard.
Wanjiru said, the building warden found Wekesa’s car keys at the door. She further claimed that before his disappearance, a certain policeman called him and threatened him. “We had retired to bed when the officer called him and threatened him about trade deals,” Wanjiru said.
