Nairobi- Police are hunting down a four-man gang that hijacked and abducted a Nairobi County Member of County Assembly (MCA) on Tuesday night.
The gang abducted Viwandani MCA, Samuel Nyangwara along Bunyala road while he was heading home and stole 100,000 shillings from him.
Police on patrol were notified of the ordeal and pursued the gangsters but when they realised they were being trailed, the gangsters dumped Nyangwara at Capitol Hill and escaped.
A detective who spoke to News24 said they trailed the gang using the MCA's phone but did not make any arrests as the gang left.
"They managed to escape after dumping him in Capitol hill but will we pursue them. We hope that the cameras will assist us arrest them," said the detective who sought anonymity as he is not authorized to speak to the media.
