A Homa Bay teacher who disappeared during the marking of this year’s Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations has been found at Kamkunji Grounds, Nairobi
Moses Odumbe, a teacher at Kogana Primary School in Rachuonyo North Sub-county was found more than two weeks after he went missing.
A Good Samaritan found him and alerted the police who took him to Kamukunji Police Station, where he requested for a phone to call his relatives.
His brother-in-law, Mr Collins Oduor, told reporters that the teacher had sought accommodation at a nearby hotel, but did not spend there.
“The hotel confirmed that the teacher made a booking for three days but failed to spend a night at the facility for unknown reasons,” he said.
According to the brother-in-law, the teacher was found while weak and dehydrated.
He is currently admitted at Nairobi Women’s Hospital.
It is still not clear what could have happened to the teacher.
Investigations into what transpired are underway.
The teacher left his rural home at Kogana village, November 8 to Nairobi for marking never to return.
The man told his family that he was headed to St Georges Girls Secondary School in Nairobi to mark the national exam papers.
He reportedly told them that he would return after the exercise but this was not to be. Later his phone went off.
