Cop mysteriously disappears in Kirinyaga

10 September 2013, 16:56 James Kabotia

Kirinyaga - Fear has gripped Kerugoya police station in Kirinyaga County after a police corporal disappeared a week ago under mysterious circumstances.

According to Kirinyaga Central OCPD John Njuguna Kamau the officer has not been seen for the last one week and his whereabouts are unknown.

Police in the station fear that 40-year-old Qalicha Guyo could have been kidnapped following numerous cases of kidnapping that have become rampant in the area.

Addressing press at his office, Kamau revealed that the officer left the station at around 8.00 am last week on Monday armed with pistol for a local law court where he has been working as a court orderly.

However, the officer didn't report to work and has never been seen publicly since then.

Kamau said that when his colleagues went to check at his house, they found the door open with his two mobile phones lying on the table.

"We don't know where the officer is but we are investigating and hope he's well," he noted.

Led by officer commanding Kerugoya police station, the officers immediately launched a search but so far nobody knows exactly where he is.

His family members have also told the police that they have not seen or heard from him for the last one month terming his disappearance as shocking.

The OCPD termed the officer as a disciplined and hardworking person who kept to himself but was always at his workstation on time.

Kamau said that he has constituted a team of CID officers to investigate the incident and trace his whereabouts.

The incident comes hot on the heels of another disappearance of a police constable attached to the same station three weeks ago.

The officer went missing after he was charged with sexually assaulting a minor and has never been seen since then.

Mohamed Noor was accused of sodomising a 7-year-old boy at the police line but refused to appear before court and went underground.

Police are still hunting him down after the court issued a warrant of arrest against him.

Kamau termed the two cases as unrelated but was quick to point out that both cases were under serious investigations.
