Following the outcry from the family of one of the witnesses in Deputy President William Ruto's ICC case, the family which hails from Uasin Gishu County is still hopeful that their father, who they noted had just gone missing after withdrawing as a witness in the DP Ruto's Case will eventually resurface.
According to one of the local stations, the witness identified as Jonah Kipng’etich was a key witness in the case involving the Deputy President and Former Radio presenter Joshua Sang following the post-election violence in 2007 with the case being dropped after insufficient evidence.
However, reports have now revealed the last moments of Kipng’etich before his disappearance.
According to his family, Kipng’etich went into hiding in Malindi Kilifi County after irate villagers set his home ablaze and chased away his family members.
In a story published by one of the local stations, Kipng’etch lamented that he was being chased “up and down like an antelope”, and blamed his troubles on a local chief and a teacher. His home was later burned.
The last time the family heard of Kipng’etich was when he went to pay his son’s school fees identified as Kiprop who studied at Premier High School in Malindi and Sh6,000 for a school trip to Arusha, Tanzania. He did not make it back to their house.
