Their mother Naisera Muthoni who spoke to press in tears said the two had only completed preparing to go back to school after one week holiday.

Leon Macharia, 15, and his identical twin brother Ryan Mwenda were both form two students at Moi high school Mbiruri and Kangaru boys’ High school respectively.

Ms Muthoni said the two disappeared at midday when she was preparing to drop them to school.

"They were to report yesterday in their respective schools. We woke up and started preparing. We ironed clothes and we ate lunch, then I entered my room to prepare but not long I came out and found they had left all their school belongings behind and vanished to unknown destination," Muthoni said.

Muthoni, a teacher at Nyangwa Boys High School, said now after missing them she took her vehicle and followed them to see whether she could find them on the way but all in vain.

"Nothing looked abnormal since morning," Muthoni observed.

However, Muthoni said the two had raised concern that their wish was to school in one secondary school since they are twins questioning why they were separated.

She said they had no indiscipline issues since they were born.

Muthoni said this holiday is when the issue of schooling together cropped up and they did not imagine it could escalate to a level of leaving home unnoticed.

"They were saying their school mates were asking them why they agreed to be separated,” Muthoni narrated.

Ms Muthoni said the reason for separating them was that they wanted to inculcate and develop individual character and personality stating that since they were borne, they have tackled everything together.

The mother said the information she received from bodaboda riders who operate within that area was that they were seen and requested to be dropped in Nairobi-bound matatu terminus in Embu town.

She said she had given them KSh 2,000 as their pocket money.

She also said she reached out to all their relatives and no one had seen them.

The matter was reported at Itabua Police station.

Muthoni can be reached via phone number 0723511745 and the boys’ father Joseph Mwaniki on 0722321655.
