The lawyer and scholar, Prof Hassan Nandwa, who went missing mysteriously was yesterday found dumped in Mwingi, Kitui county.
His family said he appeared shocked and confused and could not narrate what happened for the ten days he was at the hands of kidnappers.
The lawyer’s client, ex-terror convict Elgiva Oliacha, who also went missing the same day he was released from Kamiti Maximum Prison on completion of his sentence, is also missing.
Prof Nandwa’s family said he was found alive on Monday at around 1 am, about 200km from Nairobi.
They said he looked confused and appeared to have been drugged.
“At the moment he is very confused. He appears to have been drugged then tortured as he has bruises on his body,” a relative said.
The relative said he apparently was driven several kilometres before he was forced into a room where he was again subjected to both physical and mental torture.
It is reported that Prof. Nandwa disappeared hours after he visited Anti-Terrorism Police Unit head offices in Nairobi to receive his client Oliacha, who had been released the same day.
