Human rights lobby Haki Africa has given the government a two day ultimatum to disclose the whereabout of missing person.
Athman Mohamed Hajj, 44 was abducted on Thursday last week at Majengo area.
He was heading home from Masjib Q’ubaa around Majengo area, Mombasa.
According to Haki Africa Executive Director Hussein Khalid, Hajj a businessman within Majengo has never been involved in any criminal activity and has never been apprehended by security agents all his life.
“If the police are involved let them present him in court or inform his family of his offence, if they are not implicated, let them investigate the matter and rescue him,” noted Mr. Khalid.
He said the organisation is perturbed by the inhuman acts barely three days after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered police to work under the conformity of the law.
“We have documented over 9 forced disappearance cases from the beginning of the year, 8 in Lamu County and one in Kwale County,” noted the human rights defender.
He said the lobby will pursue the case until security agents reveal the whereabouts of Hajj, a father of 5 if they were involved in his unlawful arrest.
Hajj’s brother Rashid Athman said the family is currently living in fear and he urged police to communicate to them on the disappearance of their kin.
“My brother has been a fish vendor for over 21 years now and he has never in any case been arrested for breaking the law,” he noted.
The family is also related to the late Mbwajumali Chief Mohammed Famau and his Assistant Malik Athman and the arrest may be linked to the ongoing investigations over the last years killing.
