Family seeks help to trace missing university student

A first year law student has been missing for the last one week having been seen last on Wednesday May 9 at Allsopps area along Thika Road.

On the day he went missing, Dennis Munene, a law degree at student the University of Nairobi, told his friend that he was going to meet a friend in town.

This even as university students have been forced to be away from classes since March 1, 2018 when the lecturers strike kicked off.

Learning in some universities has resumed despite the Universities Academic Staff Union (UASU) insisting that the strike is still on.

Dennis, who was meant to resume studies at the UoN law school, said he was meeting a friend in town on May 9.


Calls to his phone number have since not been going through and the police are tracking it to establish its last signal location.

Dennis’ sister Mercy told Nairobi News that she last spoke with her 25-year-old brother on Sunday, three days before he went missing.

“When we talked he never sounded disturbed and because he always tells me when he has a problem I do not think his disappearance has anything to do with troubles in his life,” Mercy said.

Dennis was living alone at Allsopps area behind Naivas Supermarket and his friend who saw him leave for town said he was wearing a black rugged jeans.

The family is now appealing to anyone with information to call them through the numbers 0705876609 or 0714290449.
