But what he found later when he went back to the university left him dazed.
“I was shocked to find out that my son had failed his examinations and I guess his disappearance was because he could not muster enough courage to break the bad news to us,” he divulges.
Tado believes his last born was not for the idea of repeating a class, as was required of him, but wonders why he did not discuss the matter with him.
University of Nairobi Faculty of Veterinary Medicine Associate Dean Seth Kisia says Oduor was a student at the institution and when his father reported his disappearance, they consulted his friends to ascertain if they knew his whereabouts.
“His best friend was also shocked by his disappearance, which he termed mysterious,” says Prof Kisia.
Nyamwanda disappeared on June 29 from his uncle’s house in Kilimani estate in Nairobi.
His father Mr Owuocha, a teacher at Kasagam Secondary School in Kisumu, says he failed to get accommodation in the hostels this semester and would commute from the uncle’s home to campus.
“The last person to set eyes on him was the house help,” says Owuocha.
He said he was informed his son had disappeared at 7pm that day. He said he was informed he left the house barefoot as if within the compound.
“The house help told us he had looked psychologically stressed, but did not talk when he came back but left without his phone and identification as they later came to realise,” he says.
He says they first reported the incident at Kilimani Police Station then launched searches for his only son in hospitals, and at the City mortuary but there is no clue up to date whatsoever on his whereabouts.
