10 March 2015, 12:35 Jayden Kanuri

Thika - Police in Thika are investigating circumstances under which a local MCA disappeared even as locals fear that the leader may have been kidnapped.

Samuel Gitau, the MCA for Juja ward went missing on Saturday night, shortly after he allegedly went searching for an ATM machine.

Kiambu County Commandant, James Mugera said police are still pursuing all possible leads to the missing MCA.

Family members claim that the MCA left his home on the outskirts of Juja on Saturday around 8.30 pm to draw cash from a nearby ATM machine but never returned.

His vehicle was found at the gate to his home with the lights still on and the keys still dangling from the ignition.

Huge stones had been used to block the vehicle, family members said.

His wife, Tabitha Wairimu who is also expectant, has urged police to expedite the search for her husband.

“He told me he wanted to get some money from an ATM in Juja since he was to be a guest of honour at a fundraiser the following day,” said Wairimu.

She however said that she had not heard her husband complain of any death threats on him or fear for his life.
