Case of Abducted 2 Indians, Kenyan Driver Remains a Mystery

The three were abducted after leaving a club in the Westlands area and returning to their apartment near the Ole Sereni area.

The case of missing Indians remains unresolved despite numerous arrests and detention of police officers presumed to have played a key role in the abduction and subsequent disappearance of two Indians and their Kenya driver on the eve of the 2022 August general elections.

On July 23, two Indians and their Kenyan driver were abducted along Mombasa Road in Nairobi; they were never seen and their whereabouts remain unknown.

The three were abducted after leaving a club in the Westlands area and returning to their apartment near the Ole Sereni area.

A months-long investigation resulted in the arrest and arraignment of 12 police officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation’s Special Services Unit (SSU).

Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) investigators have maintained that the officers are linked to the forcible disappearance of the missing Indians, Mohammed Said Sami, and Zulfiqar Ahmed.

The two are said to have traveled to Kenya during the election season and worked with a digital media team affiliated with President William Ruto.

According to other officials, they were hackers.

Their driver, Nicodemus Mwania, has also gone missing since then, and as the investigation progressed, the entire SSU crew of about 60 police officers was placed on indefinite leave.

However, on December 2, the unit’s two senior officers were recalled and assigned to new roles.

The team was disbanded in September, and all 60 officers were placed on leave before being recalled in parts. Other junior officers on leave were transferred to new stations.
