Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has offered a Sh300,000 reward to any member of the public who can find activist Caroline Mwatha Ochieng.

The governor has asked anyone with the necessary information to forward the same to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Caroline is an activist and founder member of the Dandora Community Justice Centre.

She was last seen on the morning of Wednesday February 6, 2019 when she left her home to run some errands in the CBD.


The mother of two has been leading a campaign against extra-judicial killings witnessed in the estate.

Search party exhausted various places

Centre coordinator Wilfred Olal, who has been leading the search party, told reporters that they have faced threats from police due to the work that they do.

"The killer police have been very hostile and have been issuing threats to some of us, including Caroline," he stated.


One of her two children alerted her colleagues that she was missing and they confirmed it to be true when phone calls to her went unanswered.

"Her husband is away and the other child is in boarding school.

"We have searched various places including courts, police stations and even mortuaries," Olal told reporters.

Amnesty International executive director Irungu Houghton has also called on the DCI and the police find her and get her back home.


"Amnesty International Kenya calls upon the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the National Police Service to thoroughly investigate Carol’s disappearance, establish her whereabouts and deliver her to her friends and family," Houghton stated.
