The mother of missing State House official Albert Muriuki is appealing to the public to help in finding her son.

Dr Naomi Mutea on Tuesday allowed the media to publish details of her personal contacts that she hopes those with information on her son can call and tell her.

Mr Muriuki, who was working at State House as the deputy presidential adviser on Legal and Constitutional issues was last seen on December 30, last year.

“I am asking anyone with information to contact me. I am desperate to find my son,” she told the Nation. Those with information can call her on Tel: 061-2050000, 0702 090 267 or 0733 384 587.

“He was last seen neatly dressed at the Pension Plaza on Loita Street on Dec 30, and has not been seen at his work place or his residence since then. I last spoke with him on December 24,” Dr Mutea said.

“He disappeared without carrying any identification papers, not even his passport or certificates. His documents were all arranged on his bed inside the flat where he lived in Westlands, Nairobi.”

On Tuesday, State House said it had no new information on his whereabouts.

State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu instead said the matter was before the Directorate of Criminal Investigation.

INTERN AT THE HAGUE

Mr Muriuki graduated from Columbia Law School in New York in 2011 and had once been an intern at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands.

In February 2011, he wrote an article in the influential Foreign Affairs magazine in which he argued for the ICC to play by the rules.

“The ICC needs to explain to Kenyans that suspects handed over to the court are still just that — suspects,” he wrote.
