What you need to know:

  • Reports of missing persons used to be taken seriously in Kenya.
  • The police would visit affected kin at the earliest opportunity and rope them into the search of their relatives.

I dedicate this space to families whose loved ones have disappeared in circumstances that even science cannot explain. One such family is that of Mwenda Mbijiwe.
