The police officer, Joseph Mbugua Njeri, was in Turkana East at Napeitom Police Station for work when he went missing without a trace.

Mbugua had stepped out to relieve himself in the morning when he went missing, and there has been no trace of him for the past 10 days.

Many missed calls

“I called at around 5:30pm but no one answered. The first call was answered around 7:40pm by his colleague who told me Wa Njeri (my husband) left around 6pm to relieve himself, and we’re looking for him,” Njeri’s wife, Anne Wanja, told Citizen TV.
