“Cynthia told us on Sunday evening that her friend was coming to Nairobi and they would meet in Machakos town the following day to pick some items. She had left Mombasa in a hurry and abandoned her personal effects with a friend, ” said Mukio.”On Monday evening at around 7 pm, I tried calling her but her phone went unanswered even though it was going through. I assumed she could have been in a matatu coming back home and decided to wait, ” he added clenching on her framed picture.
Mr. Mukio tried to reach Cynthia Mwikali again around midnight and this time her phone was switched off. They assumed she had run out of battery since she had left her charger on the socket.
