Saturday March 30, 2019-The family of a GSU officer is in agony over his disappearance in State House, Mombasa, nine years ago.
Constable Jorim Odhiambo of Force Number 82367 is reported to have gone missing from State House on August 7, 2010.
According to reports by various media houses at the time, Odhiambo was to be on sentry duty before his disappearance.
Two weeks after the GSU officer went missing an inquiry file was opened at Mombasa Central police station. However, not much information was availed after.
Speaking during an interview, his mother, 65-year-old Mary Abang’a, remains hopeful that her son will return to their home in Maramba village in Rarieda, Siaya County.
She refused to accept that her son had passed away because she hadn't gotten any information on his whereabouts for almost a decade.
“I've never felt that my son is dead. He has not ‘sent a dream’ to me or any of my relatives. Let the Government tell us where he is, whether dead or alive.”
“Even if he was killed in a fight with criminals, let us be told because we've suffered for a very long time,” she stated.
Odhiambo's wife, Joselyne Nanjala, also still reeling from the officer's disappearance, maintained that she would never stop waiting for him to come back.
“I still pray that my husband will come back,” she stated adding that their daughter who was 18 months old at the time of his disappearance was not in Class 5,” she said.
