Monica Wanjiru Mugo, Ochieng’s wife, says her husband left Dornhom’s eighth-grade home at 7am and said he was going to meet his friend Oduor in town. Wanjiru says they later spoke at 8:41 am and her husband sent her sh200 through Mpesa. He sent her a call back at noon where Ochieng promised to call again but did not call and later since 4pm his phone went off.

She says her husband was working on a tough trip before he was fired because of the Covid-19 tragedy. He turned his private car into a car rental business before the same Mazda car was repossessed for a few weeks before the loan disappeared.

Oduor father of two wives Catherine Atieno who lives in Embakasi said her husband left Ochieng company with Benjamin at 8 a.m. on a horrible day.

Atieno said Oduor would return in the afternoon to take him for a clinical examination but by then his phone had been switched off.

She says her husband was in the business of selling car parts and a car rental business.

Obung father of one who lives in the Nasra Garden area mother Kayole Kitengela resident Caroline Obuong said her son has never had any criminal record and his disappearance has left his family shocked.

Amache’s brother, Elvis Imbai said his brother had informed him that he was scheduled to meet his brother the day he disappeared and the evening they were to meet he was unreachable.

He says his brother had informed him of his whereabouts in Kitengela and when he saw pictures circulating on social media and knowing his brother well he reported the matter to the Kitengela police station.

He said the brother, the father of one, was running a car rental business and was living at Everest estate Athi-river.

After Amache reported the matter to Kitengela police station it is alleged that the detectives followed the instructions of an unknown caller known only as Ericko who said where the car was.

Investigators are following the CCTV camera guide of the station where the four are reported to have last seen.

Isinya Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Jeremiah Ndubai says investigations into the matter are ongoing and detectives are working in a key way to uncover the mysterious disappearance of the four.
