Mwenda Mbijiwe’s mother pleads with Govt to help locate missing son

Since President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua were sworn in on September 13, Ms. Jane Gatwiri has gone on her knees a thousand times and talked to God, hoping her prayers will be answered.

During campaigns, the two politicians spoke about forced disappearances, blamed on security agencies, and pledged to address the matter if elected.

It is this pledge that keeps Ms. Gatwiri’s spirit alive that one day, her son Mwenda Mbijiwe will return home.

The security consultant went missing on June 12, 2021. The following day, a car he had hired for three weeks for business was discovered in a coffee plantation near Tatu City, Kiambu County.

His last phone signal was traced in Thika.

Fifteen months later, Ms. Gatwiri still clings to hope that her son will come back home alive. Lately, the mother of four says she can see flickers of light at the end of the tunnel.
