A family from Ngutu village in Mathioya, Muranga Couny has offered a KSh 1 million reward to whoever will help them locate their 56-year-old son who has now

His Volvo vehicle registration number KCN 336 that he was driving at the time of disappearance is also yet to be found.

James Maina Muikia who is a father of two and who runs a fresh produce company went missing on April, 21 2018, at Rwika area of Gachoka constituency in Embu County along the Embu-Kamburu road.

At the time of disappearance, he was on his way from Embu to his Langata home in Nairobi and was coming from inspecting his French beans farm and had been there for five days.

TUKO.co.ke visited the family’s home where this writer met the missing man’s sister, Judy Wangari Munene, who said she had travelled from Britain together with her other sister to come join other family members in searching for him.

Wangari added that the family was at loss as to what could have happened to him because the KSh 70,000 that was in one of the phones was intact as well as that in his bank accounts.

The family also disclosed Maina was a co-director with his wife in the fresh produce company they jointly own.

His father who fought back tears termed the incident as disturbing and requested whoever could be holding his first born child hostage to set him free.

The old man said since his son’s disappearance, the family has never had peace and has been having sleepless nights wondering what could have happened to him.

Maina’s mother, Joyce Njoki, said the family learnt of his disappearance on the third day through a phone call from his wife, Phyllis Maina, at around 10pm.

The family said it had looked for him in hospitals and had even extended the search in mortuaries in Embu, Murang’a, Nyeri, Meru Nairobi and in other parts of the country without success.

The family members called upon local politicians including Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria to liase with his Embu counterpart Nyaga Wambora to help in locating their missing kin.
