Agony for Mombasa families as abducted kin still missing
Two families in Likoni area in Mombasa County now want the government to produce their kin who were allegedly abducted by police officers.
The families of 20-year-old Ali Tengeza and 38-year-old Bakari Mbwana Mwanyota claim the two were abducted by security agents.
They now want Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i to intervene and help them unite with their missing family members or produce their bodies for burial if they were killed.
According to a report from Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI), Ali Tengeza was abducted on 16th February alongside two others, Juma Omar aged 29 and Hamisi Mwinyi aged 17.
Omar and Mwinyi’s bodies bodies were later discovered at Coast General Hospital mortuary with bullet wounds.
Bakari Mbwana Mwanyota was allegedly arrested on 24th February and is still missing.
His family has said that they reported the matter at Inuka police station and searched in several police stations within coast but are yet to find him.
Muhuri rapid respond officer Francis Auma said most of the raids that happened in Likoni occurred past mid night.
“We have done our investigation and we believe two white foreigners were among the security agents that raided several houses in Likoni that left two men missing and two others dead,” said Auma.
Auma said that the deceased had bullet wounds on their bodies and were booked as unknown at Coast general mortuary.
The families have claimed that they were attacked and hurt by people introduced as police officers before abducting their kin.
