Detectives investigating disappearance of businessman Dafton Mwitiki say he may have been abducted after he left his Galana Plaza office in Nairobi on Wednesday, March 11.
Using GPS and phone records, sleuths from the Serious Crimes and Investigations Unit managed to trace the businessman’s movements to Galana road before his phone went off at around 10.45pm.

In a report by Citizen TV, Mwitiki is said to have communicated with his wife on the same day at 10:30pm informing her that he was on his way home before the phone went off.
The police said several people have recorded statements including a security guard and a bodaboda rider who saw the businessman’s vehicle leaving the premises.
However, police say they could not understand why someone may have wanted to abduct the tycoon given he had never reported nor told his family members about his life being in danger.

His family members have appealed to anyone who might know of his whereabouts to surrender information to the police.
“Whoever knows any information about Dafton, kindly volunteer this information to the police,” said Christopher Nzioki, Dafton’s uncle.
Mwitiki’s black Land Rover Discovery car was found dumped in Juja, Kiambu county, along the Kimbo-Kiganjo road on Friday, March 13.
