A family from Chania estate in Thika, Kiambu County is in distress. Their kin, a mother of two, has been missing for over three weeks now.

Forty-five-year-old Elizabeth Nkatha Muriithi, left her home on May 27, 2021,  at the time, her husband was admitted at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral hospital for COVID-19.

Nkatha is said to have gone to purchase cement for  an ongoing construction project, but she never came back.

Elizabeth Nabuto, a house girl employed by the missing woman, says that on the day she went missing, her boss woke up, and observed her usual routine.

“Tulikuwa tu nayeye jioni kama kawaida, asubuhi alikuwa sawa tukakunywa breakfast then akatoka akaenda kuona watu wa mjengo,” says Nabuto.

Nkatha’s son Kelvin Mutembei agrees with nabuto. Nkatha is said to have left her phone at home something that has made it difficult to trace her.

The same day, Nkatha is said to have visited her husband at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital but has never returned and efforts by the family to trace her among friends and relatives have proven futile.

“Walikuja na nurses wawili kama wamevaa PPEs. Sasa sikumjua kwa sababu ya hizo nguo, nikaskia akisema hata hanijui. Lakini vile niliskia sauti nikamwambia kumbe uko hapa akasema eee..akaniambia all will be well. Hio ndio alisema na akaenda,” recounts Priston Kiogora, the woman’s husband.

The family reported the matter at Thika Police Station on the 28th of May, a day after her disappearance, since then there is no information on her whereabouts.

The family now calling on anyone who would have any information on her whereabouts to report to the nearest police station.
