Hey guys. So I know I haven’t been 100% myself this past week and it’s because my dad has been missing since 21st April. We tried to stay positive and deal with this quietly but we need your help. Please share the poster above and the car and any information you can share will be highly appreciated.

His daughter took to social media this morning addressing the sad news.

Dear friends, family, and fans. My dad’s car and body were found at the bottom of a river in Embu yesterday. It’s heartbreaking news but we’ve been praying for some kind of closure for a month. When I blew out my birthday candle last week that’s actually what I wished for.

I kindly ask that you give me and my family space as we make funeral arrangements. I will share details on the place and time for those interested in attending the meetings. I can’t thank you all enough for your prayers and kind words throughout this difficult time. God bless

Police are still doing investigations of the murder and we all hope they find out what really happened to him.
