The family of missing security analyst Mwenda Mbijiwe has appealed to the Kenyan government and international community for help in finding their son.

Speaking for the first time since her son - a former Airforce Commander went missing, Jane Gatwiri said she has all the reasons to believe that Mbijiwe is alive.

The vocal Security Consultant went missing on June 12 while reportedly on his way to Meru. Detectives allegedly recovered the car he was driving at a coffee plantation in Kiambu.

Gatwiri who was flanked by family members and friends argued that the case has not been handled properly.

“We are disturbed since the same people carrying out the investigations are the same people who recovered the vehicle.

"The DCI officer was not even asked to record a statement yet police keep telling us that they are busy pursuing the matter,” Gatwiri told journalists at her home in Sirimon, Buuri West, Meru County.

Mbijiwe's mother wondered why the owner of the car her son had hired was allowed to have the vehicle back.

She claims that Edward Mwangi, the owner of the vehicle Mbijiwe had hired was an officer attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Nairobi, an institution that is investigating her son's disappearance.

She also revealed that the woman identified as Tamara Mbijiwe who briefed the press on Mbijiwe's disappearance the first time is not related to her son.

Tamara had told the press that she was the sister to Mbijiwe.
