On Tuesday January 4, his mother Jane Gatwiri said that they did not celebrate Christmas in the absence of her son Mwenda. She also said that they had gone to many government offices and no answer was been forthcoming from the authorities.

“We did not even celebrate Christmas. Mwenda has been everything to us”, said the mother.

He went missing in June 2021 as he was travelling to his home county of Meru to check on a sick relative.

Mwenda Mbijiwe’s brother Nicholas Bundi said he will go all the way to DCI headquarters in Nairobi to seek answers about whereabouts of his sibling. He said he will not leave the offices before he is given an answer.

Bundi expects to meet DCI boss George Kinoti.

“As a family, we need to know the truth”, said Bundi.

On July 21, 2021, Mr Mbijiwe’s mother Jane Gatwiri expressed her frustration over State’s failure to give information about where her son was.

Well known

She said that Mwenda was known to both President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto but little was done to find him.

Mbijiwe’s mother faulted the investigations conducted on her son’s whereabouts. She asked why was a statement not recorded with police when her son’s car and other belongings were found dumped in a farm in Kiambu County.

When Mwangi’s vandalised car was recovered, its doors were open and had its keys missing. Its radiator had been plugged off, costing him Sh20,000 to recover and repair it, according to his own account.

Mbijiwe is a former Kenya Air Force officer. He regularly appeared on TV to analyse security matters with journalists and other guests. He is the CEO of a security consulting company named Eye on Security.

The white Toyota Fielder car Mwenda was believed to have been the day he disappeared was handed to the owner one Edward Mwangi by police in Ruiru. Mwangi, a Nairobi-based businessman said he has nothing to do with Mwenda’s disappearance.

His car would ordinarily be an exhibit. When he presented himself to Nairobi DCI office, he said he gave the required information. But police were yet to record his statement.
