City mother appeals to abductors to release son

A mother in Nairobi has sent a passionate appeal to the people who abducted her son in March to set him free.

Eddah Njeri Lesiya, a single mother of four, narrated to Nairobi News how on March 30th 2016 his son, Joab Lemayan Korash, received a phone call from a friend who wanted to see him but never returned home thereafter.

“A friend of my son called him on the fateful day and my son went to meet him in Pangani. That was the last time I saw him,” Ms Lesiya said.

According to the mother, his son, a 27 year old graduate of University of Nairobi, who is an accountant owed the said friend some money. She said the friend kept calling her asking when her son would pay back his money.

“The friend kept calling me asking me when my son would pay back his money. I told him that I would ask my son to pay him as soon as he could. But a week before my son went missing, the friend said that he had had enough and he would take matters into his own hands,” Ms Lesiya narrated.

The mother further said the wife of his son’s former boss had also been calling her claiming that Joab owed her some money.


She claims that the wife of her son’s former employer once called her and told her that her son “would never eat another person’s money, that time had come for him to pay.”

The mother also narrated how she begged her son’s creditors to give her time to raise the money her son owed them.

The abduction was reported at Kariobangi and Buruburu Police Station and recorded in OB No 43/07/04/2016.

The investigating officer at Kariobangi Police Station confirmed to Nairobi News that the case was reported there and that it is under investigation.

“We are waiting to hear from Safaricom after we wrote to them to know who owns the said phone numbers,” said the officer.

The mother is now appealing to anyone with any information of the whereabouts of her son to call her on 0712647019 or report to the nearest police station.
