BY CORRESPONDENT,20TH JUNE,2021-The car hired by missing former soldier Mwenda Mbijiwe has been recovered at a coffee farm in Kiambu.
The car was recovered on June 13, a day after he went missing.
Police said the car was found vandalized within a coffee farm in Tatu City.
They said Mbijiwe hired the car from a man identified as Edward Mwangi.
Mwangi told police Mbijiwe had hired the Toyota Fielder registration number KCN 614K for 3 weeks. The car had a tracking device.
He said he had tracked the vehicle’s location to the area and decided to visit after attempts to reach Mbijiwe on phone were futile.
The vehicle’s key and Mbijiwe’s personal belongings were however not recovered from the vehicle.
Mwangi reported the matter to police and was subsequently allowed to repossess his vehicle.
Police said more people are expected to be questioned and record statements over the incident.
Mbijiwe was traveling to Meru to visit his ailing mother.
According to Mwangi, Mbijiwe had expressed interest in prolonging his initial agreement on the day he was supposed to surrender the car.
His sister, Tamara Mbijiwe said they filed a missing person report on June 14 at the Central police station, Nairobi after he could not be reached on his mobile phone.
