On Monday, human rights activist Caroline Mwatha was also reported missing

Kenya African National Union (KANU) youth congress chairman Billian Okoth was reported missing on Monday but Ureport has learnt that he called one of his colleagues on Tuesday morning saying he would explain his disappearance to police.

According to his wife Nerima Wako, the Ficha Uchi Initiative founder stepped out on Sunday noon and has not been seen since.

“He’s been missing since Sunday at noon so it’s been more than 24 hours without any contact whatsoever. He didn’t have his phone, his car keys or his office keys.

“I thought he had gone to the shop. I haven’t seen him since then,” she said.


KANU also took to Twitter to ask members of the public to help trace Billian who was unreachable on phone at the time.

“PUBLIC NOTICE: We appeal to members of the public to help trace Billian Okoth Ojiwa ( KYC Chairman). According to his wife @NerimaW, Billian has been missing since last evening and is out of reach on phone.

“Anyone with info to get in touch with Nerima or us. #FindBillianOjiwa,” wrote the party.

Billian’s alleged disappearance was a trending topic on Tuesday morning and police at Nairobi’s Kilimani Police Station are still investigating the matter.

His Ficha Uchi Campaign has helped to buy uniform for many school-going children in Mathare slums, a place which according to him, has moulded him.

On Monday, human rights activist Caroline Mwatha was also reported missing and according to her husband Joshua Ochieng’ they last talked on Wednesday last week.


“I assumed that she was in a meeting and continued to call; I called the whole night but nobody picked,” said Ochieng’.

Mwatha, a founder member and case worker at the Dandora Community Social Justice Centre, has been missing for six days.
