One of the two minors who was locked up by police attached to Kayole Police Station for losing direction has been reunited with his family.

Joseph Wachira who schools at Imara Daima Primary school was positively linked to his parents after his teachers positively identified him.

According to Ruth Bange an activist working with an organisation called Usikimye the minor was handed over to his mother on Wednesday, July 28.

“Joseph Wachira has been found thanks to all your efforts,” she said.

She also shared text messages she shared with a teacher at the school that reached out to Bange who in return linked her up to the family.

However, John Mumo is yet to be linked to his parents and the activist group is requesting that the message is shared so that he gets his parents.

The two minors were found when activists who had been arrested for picketing without permission were nabbed and locked up at Kayole Police Station.

The activists were then shocked to find the two minors inside the cells and when asked why they were there, they said that they had been locked up after they lost direction.

Wachira said that he was nabbed by the police after he got lost as he had followed a friend to the shops but could not get his way back home.

Mumo said that he was new to the city and his parents live in Taita Taveta county and he was in Nairobi to visit his uncle.
