Missing Kiambu MCA Samuel Gitau found in Naivasha


The Kiambu County Assembly member who has been missing for a week was found in Naivasha on Sunday evening.

Samuel Gitau Munene, the Juja Ward MCA, went missing a week ago.

He had left his Mirima-ini estate home at about 8.30pm to go and withdraw money from an ATM in Juja Town on Saturday, March 7, but did not return home.

His vehicle, a Toyota Voxy, was found the following morning at the entrance of his compound.

On Sunday evening, March 15, Mr Munene was found in Naivasha, along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

Initial reports indicated he had escaped from the boot of a car believed to belong to his abductors.

Residents who witnessed the incident took him to a nearby home from where he was taken to Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi by a team led by Kiambu Governor William Kabogo.

The MCA, who suffered injuries on his hands and legs, was helped to move away from the road by onlookers who witnessed the incident near the busy centre on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

Mr Munene was escorted to the home of Naivasha East MCA Samuel Waithuki Njane, who is the Nakuru County Assembly majority leader.

Calls were then made to Governor Kabogo, who confirmed that the man was indeed the MCA who had been missing for a week.

Mr Waithuki said Mr Munene was very weak and could hardly talk when the late-night vegetable traders saw him fall out of the moving car’s boot.

He added that the Kiambu governor drove to his residence accompanied by other leaders who later took the MCA to Aga Khan Hospital for treatment.

Mr Munene’s return brings to an end a weeklong search during which a dead man was found locked in a private motor vehicle in Kiambu.
