Three children belonging to a candidate for MCA in Uasin Gishu County have gone missing for the fourth day running.
The three boys — Clifford Nyambane, six, Dan Nyamweya, five, and Glen Ongagi, three — went to Eldovil SDA Church in the company of their cousin on Saturday but failed to return.
Their father James Ratemo, a Kanu candidate for Kapsoya ward, was in agony on Wednesday after efforts to find them failed to bear fruit.
Their mother, with teary eyes, said the children had gone ahead of her to church but she did not find them when she arrived a few minutes later.
“I prepared very early for church as is the norm on Saturday,” she said.
“However, when I reached church, which is just 500 metres away, I could not find them. I assumed that they had gone to play with their friends but I was alarmed when they failed to come back home.”
She appealed for help to help find her children.
“These children are my only hope. Please, anybody with information, assist me to find my children,” she said.
An uncle of the children, who was last seen with them, has denied any knowledge of their whereabouts.
