The police have not issued any official statements regarding the kidnapping. This has prompted concerns and led to speculations about the circumstances surrounding Rai's abduction.

The incident has raised significant concerns within the community and among public figures.

Calls for transparency, accountability, and prompt action are growing louder, as citizens and leaders demand answers about the circumstances surrounding his abduction.

Eric Theuri, the president of the Law Society of Kenya, has spoken out about the case, emphasising that Rai's disappearance raises alarms about the alleged resurgence of extrajudicial actions involving law enforcement.
