Granny seeks help to trace son ‘hiding from Mungiki’

A Kiambu elderly woman has urged the government to help her trace the whereabouts of her son who went missing seven years ago after being issued with death threats by alleged members of the outlawed Mungiki sect.

Salome Muthoni Gikonyo, 66, who also shifted her base to Ongata Rongai from Kiambu following fears of her life after members of the outlawed sect kept invading her home looking for her son told the People Daily that she last heard of him in 2013.

She said that her son used to call her from an undisclosed foreign country which she later came to learn was Sweden where he had gone to seek asylum.

“My son John Kamau Gikonyo, now 46-year-old disappeared in 2011 after receiving death threats from people claiming to be members of the outlawed Mungiki sect and only called us three years later from a foreign country which I was later told is Sweden where he had gone to hide lest he be killed,” she said amid tears.
