Sharon Otieno’s family in fear after another attempted kidnap

Thugs attempt to kidnap a member of Sharon's family


Last week, unknown people ambushed the younger Otieno, threatened him, and even attempted to kidnap him in Nairobi’s Kangundo Road area.

The younger brother to Sharon’s father was walking home from work. He later recorded the incident at Mawe Mbili Police Station.


According to Sharon’s uncle, five people who had concealed their faces, tried forcing him into a waiting car but fled after he raised the alarm.

Sharon’s father, Douglas Otieno, told the Nation that the thugs had also threatened his brother.

“The thugs told him to be careful; that he will know this is Kenya; and that they are more Kenyan than him. Utajua hii ni Kenya na sisi ni Wakenya zaidi yako … they said in Kiswahili,” Douglas said of the attackers who were said to have been armed with pangas and axes.
