Activists demand release of Yebei's phone records

04 February 2015, 10:35 Philomenah Chebet

Eldoret - An Eldoret based human rights activist group has given the government a week to disclose the information obtained by security agents from the phones of the missing ICC witness, Meshack Yebei.

There have been speculations in the recent past whether Yebei, who went missing late last year while taking his child to hospital in Turbo after allegedly being kidnapped, is alive or dead.

Addressing a press conference in Eldoret, Ken Wafula, the Centre for Human Rights and Democracy executive director claimed the cell phone of Yebei, which police investigating his disappearance took away, has information on his whereabouts.

“We are giving the officers from the Serious Crimes and Prevention Unit (SCPU) one week to disclose those behind the kidnap and disappearance of Yebei. They took away his two simcards. They should make public all information they got from the sim cards,” said Wafula.

“I shall personally move to court to demand the full disclosure of what was found in the sim cards if the government fails to release the information,” threatened Wafula.

Early this year, National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale sensationally claimed that Wafula was behind the disappearance of Yebei and asked CID director, Ndegwa Muhoro, to investigate the renowned human rights activist.

The Garissa Town MP alleged that Wafula had written emails to his associates calling for elimination of Yebei, who was said to have been a critical witness in the ICC cases.

“There is ample material in parliamentary proceedings showing that Wafula actively contemplated drastic action against Yebei. He and his associates considered the deceased a very dangerous person whose fate was to be sealed immediately and therefore, he should give answers,” said Duale, who was flanked by more than 20 MPs at the press conference in parliament buildings in Nairobi.
