The Missing Member of Parliament for Uganda reported missing has returned safely to Uganda.

David Wakikona, the legislature for Bukigia had been reported missing after boarding an uber from Kilimani to Tom Mboya street in the CBD.

Confirming his safety in Uganda, Kilimani Sub-County Commander Muturi Mbogo said Wakikona had boarded a plane to Eldoret to see a sick relative after finishing his errands in the CBD before returning to Uganda.

"The MP picked a taxi in Nairobi to run errands but he switched off his phone and took a flight to Eldoret to see his sick relative before heading back to Uganda," Mbogo stated.

Wakikona is reported to have switched on his phone after he arrived in Uganda.

The legislature checked in at Samura Court along Arwings Kodhek road on October 3, 2022, for an East Africa Community(EAC) meeting together with his colleagues in Nairobi.

He was with his other three colleagues and the National Assembly clerk.

On Sunday at around 6:26 am, WaKikona went to the main gate of Samura Court and told the soldier at the gate to request an uber for him to be taken to Tom Mboya Street in town.

He was picked up by the uber a few minutes later and driven away but his phone went silent since then and his whereabouts are not known.
