A Human rights activist from Kirinyaga County has gone missing, leaving his family and friends in his PI village home in anxiety.
John Nyaga Ndwiga has not been seen since Wednesday last week when he rode his motorbike from his PI home headed for his Miraa farm in South Ngariama, Ndwiga, who journalists in Kirinyaga and Embu know for his drawing their attention to instances where the poor are downtrodden, is said to have been seen last talking to a friend at the PI market bus stop before heading to Murinduko.
His daughter, Purity Nyaga, said her father did not return home that day as usual and they had no way of reaching him as he had that day forgotten his phone at home.
She said they had looked for him everywhere without success and were now appealing to anyone with information regarding their 59-year old father to contact them.
Ms. Nyagah said her father was wearing a black T-shirt and trousers and was riding a Sky-go motorbike registration number KMDY 532M.
She said they had reported the disappearance to Gathoge Police Post and Kianyaga Police Station and asked anyone with information to reach them through cell phone number 0720 044517 or contact the nearest police station.
Ndwiga, a persistent human rights crusader was recently working on a case where an 84-year old man and his family faced eviction.
This was after a wealthy man used an old court order to have the old man’s land subdivided and six new title deeds issued by the Kirinyiga land registry.
A case filed by Nyaga on behalf of the old man’s family managed to have the earlier court order overturned on grounds that it was made based on false evidence while a second case meant to restore the original title is awaiting judgement.
