A man who was on Thursday allegedly kidnapped in Homa Bay has been found. Duncan Ndege, 39, whose disappearance has been linked to his support for former Homa Bay Town MP Martin Ogindo (pictured) who is vying on a Green Congress Party of Kenya, was found on Saturday morning after he was reportedly taken captive by a gangsters on Thursday at 9pm.

While narrating his ordeal when he recorded statement at the Homa Bay Police Station, Ndege said the assailants attacked him on his way from Rodi trading centre to his home at Kanyada in the constituency, blindfolded him, tied his hands and legs before bundling him in a vehicle to an unknown destination.

Ndege said he was later picked by sugarcane cutters who found him dumped in Trans Mara sugarcane plantation in Migori county and when he regained his conscious.

He claims he had been previously assaulted this month by alleged supporters of one of Ogindo’s opponents and was treated at Homa Bay county referral hospital.

Ogindo who accompanied him to the police station, asked the police to investigate the matter and take appropriate action against persons involved in the crime.
