Bungoma -  Family members, relatives and supporters of the kidnapped Mbakalu Ward MCA, Bethwel Mwambu got a reprieve after he was found at Lwandanyi on the Kenya- Uganda border.

Mwambu, who had been kidnapped from his Tongaren home, was found unconscious and is currently receiving treatment at the private Lumboka memorial hospital in Bungoma town.

According to Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka, residents of Changara village found Mwambu sleeping under a tree.

“We thank God that he is alive and kicking. We were worried but now can breathe a sigh of relief. Let the security agencies bring to book all the goons who kidnapped him,” he said.

Mwambu was kidnapped by three armed thugs wearing police uniform on Tuesday as he entered his home. They abandoned his vehicle at the nearby Baharini dam after it developed a mechanical problem.

According to his wife Beverlyne Mwambu, she was woken up by the watchman who blew the whistle at the gate asking for help.

“When I woke up and rushed to the scene of the incident, I saw my husband’s vehicle from a distance. I was confused and started crying,” she said at her Mbakalo home on Wednesday.

Bungoma County woman representative, Reginalda Wanyonyi and Bungoma County Assembly Speaker, John Makali visited him at Lumboka hospital and prayed for his quick recovery.

“We are very happy that one of our leaders as been found alive even though he seems to have been drugged. We wish him quick recovery,” she said.
