Chege, who is gearing up to unseat Ferdinand Waititu has said that he fed with bread and soda laced with drugs by his abductors in an isolated house, where he was in captivity throughout the weekend.

Passers-by found the politician, dumped near Hass Petrol Station in Narok Town on Sunday morning.

Narok police boss Philip Kipkirui told journalists that the politician had no physical injuries when he was found. He, however, appeared weak and complained of abdominal pains.

“He told us that he was given drugs twice in a soda by his abductors and didn’t know where he was until he resurfaced in Narok Town,” Mr Kipkurui said.

A taxi driver, Mr Samson Odhiambo, said Mr Chege was staggering when he walked towards his parked car.

“He asked me, ‘Where is this place?’ Then he requested to use my phone to call his wife,” Mr Odhiambo recalled.

“He was weak and I thought of taking him to a nearby hotel but I chose to first rush him to the Narok County Referral Hospital for treatment.”

But when he was discharged from the hospital’s private wing, the politician refused to talk to journalists.

“I am well and I thank God I am okay. I will speak later in Nairobi,” Mr Chege journalists who flocked the hospital.

Accompanied by family and friends, he was taken to Nairobi by ambulance with police escort.

Chege’s statement to the police indicated that he was hidden in a house in an unknown location and fed with sleep-inducing drugs by his tormentors since Friday. He was guarded by three people who were armed with pistols and an AK-47 rifle, who later dumped him.

His disappearance led to protests in major trading centres in Kabete Constituency on Saturday as residents, mostly his supporters, demanded that police speed up the search.
