Cases of kidnappings in the country have been on an upward trajectory in the last one year and there has been no end to this menace that has seen a lot of young girls disappear.
However, in a case straight from the movies, a young girl from the county of Nyeri was rescued from her captor who had taken her all the way to a town in Tanzania known as Mto wa Mbu.
The young girl who is a student, was kidnapped by the man on the night of August 25th of this year when she stepped out for a nature call from her house at 2AM.
The captor, identified as 19 year old Jonathan Malel, was a night guard at a house that is near the young girl's in Nyeri.
The case was reported to Gatitu police post but was escalated to the special Crimes division in Kiambu's Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters.
The Special Service Unit of the DCI was tasked with tracking the kidnapper and bringing him to book and that they did.
Working with intelligence and officers from Tanzania, they apprehended the culprit and reunited the young girl with her family.
