Man missing after dramatic eviction from Hornbill club, family in distress

A family in Rongai, Kajiado county, is distressed after their son disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

The missing young man, identified as Emmanuel Omondi, 23, was last seen partying at Hornbill Club in Rongai on April 1 at around 2:30 am.

Police who have since launched investigations of his mysterious disappearance say that he was last seen after he was kicked out of the club where he was with his friends.

The disappearance of Omondi has since left police puzzled after an unidentified decomposing body was discovered at the club’s septic tank behind the restaurant’s engine room nine 9 days later.

Police believe the body found in the septic tank is that of Omondi, but his family denies that that is their kin.

“The dress code of the deceased fitted that of Omondi who had been reported missing on the 4th of April,” police said in their report.

But the family disputed the report after viewing the body lying at City Mortuary.

What has left many puzzled is that the entry of the area where the septic tank is located is chained and locked with a padlock.

17 people, including the bouncers who kicked Omondi out, have recorded statements, including his friends and club staff, concerning the disappearance.

Police are also investigating how one of his friends was left with his mobile phone and his identification card and also talked to the family the following day before it went off.

Police are yet to identify the man discovered in the septic tank at the Rongai-based club.
