Police officers are investigating the circumstances that led to the disappearance of a secondary school teacher in Kirinyaga, Central Kenya.
Mr. Sebastian Njiru Gikunju, 56, went missing on September 20 in a mysterious circumstance.
The head of Olokurto Secondary School in Narok, west of Nairobi, left for a principals' conference in Meru, the Eastern part of the country, and has not been seen since.
According to the teacher's wife, Anne Njiru, her husband went to the couple's home in Mutithi village, Mwea, in a car that did not belong to him.
She said he explained to his family that his vehicle had developed a mechanical problem and had left it at a repair garage. He said he had borrowed the one he was driving.
She suspects her husband was kidnapped.
"I suspect my husband was kidnapped on his way to the conference by unknown criminals for reasons yet to be established," said Anne Njiru.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
