Presidential aspirant Peter Solomon Gichira has dropped out of the race after claiming that he had been kidnapped by unknown assailants and robbed of his valuables in Nairobi’s Industrial Area.
According to Gichira, he was abducted as he was making his way to Bomas of Kenya for a pre-nomination meeting with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
The independent presidential aspirant has since written to IEBC saying he will not contest for the presidency as earlier planned.
In the letter dated May 25, Gichira said he was abducted by unknown people on May 23 at about 8.37 am, before he was later found dumped along Lungalunga road in Nairobi. Police confirmed that he reported the matter at the station and investigations are undergoing
