A shocking incident has left many baffled after Machakos Deputy Governor, Bernard Kiala's daughter, Kathleen Nduku was found alive in her boyfriend's house after she went missing for one week. It is believed she had been in the house having fun while her parents thought she was missing.
According to reports from Kenya, Kiala's daughter was declared missing on the 11th of November 2016 and found on Thursday, November 17.
The girl's father was forced to report the matter to the police following a chilling message he received from the alleged gang that abducted the daughter.
It is not clear how she got to her boyfriend's house, but police confirmed the girl was found at her boyfriend's house in Sunton Mwiki area in Kasarani days after claims she was kidnapped.
Narobi County commander Japheth Koome said the kidnap fears were not true as reported. Police who were involved in an intensive search traced Kathleen at her boyfriend's house in Kasarani.
Tuko reports that on Thursday, November 17, 2016, Nairobi CID boss Ireri Kamwende said they realized she was not abducted after questioning her.
"We have taken her with us to the CID headquarters so that she can record a statement before we give further information," he said.
Kathleen, a university student told the police she was staying with the man on her own volition.
The kidnap had been linked to the intrigues in the Machakos political scene with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka warning Governor Alfred Mutua that he would have to write a statement should anything bad happen to her.
