A new development has emerged in the missing Meru County gubernatorial aspirant and security expert Mwenda Mbijiwe, as detectives are currently following a lead to locate his whereabouts.
The ex- Kenya airforce officer was reported missing by his family recently, with the file at the Central police station in Nairobi, after they were unable to track his whereabouts for six days.
This is after a lead detective in his case revealed that a car resembling the one he had been last seen with was found abandoned in Kigumo, Muranga County, 166km from his home.
The security consultant was reported to have borrowed the car from a police officer based in Nairobi’s Pangani area.
Preliminary reports by the detectives also indicate that Mbijiwe met one of his police friends before he drove towards Meru.
They are currently at it believing that identifying the police friend would help them in piecing together the leads and eventually solve the mystery.
His family is yet to speak on the alleged car nor confirm if indeed its the one that the ex-Kenya Airforce officer had borrowed.
Mbijiwe was very vocal on matters security and politics, with his last social media post being the nullification of the BBI by the high court, and further executive orders by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“What you are witnessing in Kenya now is the rise of judicial activism and the self-assertion of radical judges. These will in not-so-far future transform into legislators of law.
“They will usurp the power of the Executive and the Legislature and change laws at will,” Mbijiwe opined.
His sister Tamara Mbijiwe expressed confidence in police expediting the case, while calling for prayers to the family and his brother.
“Ever since all his phones went off, the car he was using is yet to be found. In case of any information about his whereabouts kindly get in touch or report to the nearest police station.
‘Kindly remember him and the family in prayers,” Tamara urged.
