Juja MCA’s condition has ‘improved’, but he remains mum

The condition of the Juja Ward representative who escaped from his kidnappers eight days after he went missing has improved, his father said Wednesday.

Mr Moses Munene said his son, Mr Samuel Gitau, who is still being treated at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi had not given any details concerning his ordeal due to his medical condition.

“He is yet to tell us anything concerning what happened to him. We are waiting for his condition to get better so that he can, at least, tell us what happened to him,” said Mr Munene Wednesday.

The family was not aware of when he was expected to leave the hospital or when he would be in a position to narrate his ordeal.

Mr Gitau, who claimed he jumped out of a moving car, on a stretch of tarmac road in Naivasha to escape from his captors, is reported to have sustained head and leg injuries.

Relatives said Mr Gitau left his Mirima-ini estate home on March 7, at 8.30pm to withdraw money from an ATM in Juja Town ahead of a local church fundraiser that was to take place the following day.

The police said they were also waiting for him to be discharged from the hospital to get his version of events.
