Kikuyu man escapes from his abductors
Says he was questioned why he is close to Kiambu Governor William Kabogo
Police in Kikuyu constituency, Kiambu, are investigating the abduction and torture of a 30-year-old man.
Police boss Kiptoo Birgen said Morris Waceke, a secondary school teacher, was abducted last Friday at Kihunguro in Thogoto and was found on Sunday.
Waceke said he was going to a shop when he was approached by two men, calling out his name.
“They started following me, calling Morris, Morris, but I did not answer. It was around 7.30pm. Two others came, brandished a pistol and ordered me to keep quiet or they would shoot me,” he said.
“I was pulled and bundled into the boot of a waiting car and they drove away.” Waceke said the abductors asked why he is close to Kiambu Governor William Kabogo.
He said he sent an SMS to his wife Jeniffer and an Administration Police officer. As if the abductors suspected he was using his phone, they stopped, opened the boot and took his mobile phone. They led Waceke into an old building, where they tied him with a rope and started torturing him, asking why he is “playing with politicians”.
“They used pliers to squeeze my testicles so I would speak. I pleaded with them to stop torturing me,” he said yesterday at Kikuyu police station. Waceke said the following day, he was given porridge for breakfast. He said two MPs were involved in the abduction.
