Mystery has encircled the disappearance of Julius Gitau Wanyoike, a renowned businessman in Thika after he left behind a puzzling handwritten note. The businessman, who is prevalently known as Gitau wa Mali Mali, runs a wholesale shop behind the Thika main bus stage. He disappeared on Monday morning, September 21 and is yet to be traced. Reports indicate that Gitau was allegedly being pursued by auctioneers and suppliers over unpaid debts.
Julius left behind a note written in Swahili inside one of his delivery trucks. In the note, he asked his family to not bother looking for him as he was ‘in water’. “Family, life has become unbearable for me, don’t bother looking for me, I am in the water, I love you family,” read the note. Gatanga sub-county Police Commander Peter Muchemi said that the matter is still being treated as a missing person case. Assisted by the family, police have searched Thika River but their efforts after a whole week have not yet paid off.Follow us in social media:
