So Painful: Aunt to Thigio Boys' Form One Student Who Disappeared Reveals Last Moments With Him

A family in Ruiru, Kiambu county is in pain after their son David Gichohi who was a form one student at Thigio Boys' High School mysteriously went missing.

In an interview with Inooro TV's Simon Kibe, his aunt Jane said that David was in her custody since when he was in class 6 after his parents parted ways. She took him to school. Everything went on well until the second term after the 2022 general elections.

She took David to Thigio Boys' High School for the second term. After taking the school fees receipt to the secretary, she did not find him at the spot where he was waiting for her. Everyone including his classmates tried looking for him around the school but they could not find him.

She filed a missing persons report at Thigio police station. Search efforts proved futile. The family contacted his mom who moved to Loitoktok after the separation but she had not seen him.

Inside his bedroom, they noticed that David had left one pair of uniform. Two of his home clothes were missing meaning that he had planned to escape all along even before he was taken to school.

Jane says she had not noticed any sign of distress. She suspects that he could have been harrased at school and feared to open up to anyone. He was an average student in academics and had scored 259 marks in KCPE.

Jane hopes that he can come back home. Incase he returns, they will transfer him from the school or take him to a polytechnic.

His father John Njogu says that he has sunk into alcoholism due to the trauma of his only son disappearing mysteriously. He had 4 kids. The three daughters are in custody of their mother.
