Woman in 14yr search for missing son rejects DNA results

Woman in 14yr search for missing son rejects DNA results

A Nakuru family that had hoped to put an end to the 14-year long search for their missing son has rejected DNA test results.

On Monday, they claimed that there was foul play in the process.

“Naomba serikali kama hii DNA inaweza rudiwa mahali pengine ambao si Kisumu,” Hellen Atangi said.

She has requested for an independent repeat of the the DNA test alleging that she was assaulted during the extraction process.

Hellen wants the test to be carried out somewhere else apart from the government chemist in Kisumu where the initial test was carried out.

Her 2-year-old son went missing in June 2005.

“Kuna mama alituletea house girl alafu saa kumi na moja jioni vile nilitoka kuenda sokoni, nikirudi nikapata mtoto na huyo msichana hawako,” narrated Hellen.

She reported the matter at the Kisii Central Police Station and searched for him for months but her efforts bore no fruits.

Hellen gave the search in 2007; however, in October this year, she received an anonymous call that informed her of the whereabouts of someone who allegedly looked like her son.

“Tulichukua picha, mtoto alikuwa mazingira mabaya yenye ata kama ni 14 years mtoto amekauka juu vile unaweza kosa kukula vizuri mtoto alikua anakaa tu vibaya,” said Hellen.

It is the culmination of these events that saw the boy, and his supposed mother brought to the government chemist’s office in Kisumu on orders issued by a court in Kehancha, Migori County.

The case will be mentioned on November 18.
