More than 40 days later, the 43-year-old businessman is yet to be found.
But the kidnappers, in an attempt to convince the family that their kin How are you doing alright
The family in Samburu has appealed to the government to help them find him, more than a month since he was disappeared.
Lenengwesi’s elder brother later tried to reach him on telephone, but his calls went unanswered. He then sent a text message asking if he was alright, isonly to receive an answer that indeed he was. But the family says the text wasn’t written as Lenengwesi would have done.
“If you look at that message, it wasn’t how Solomon would have responded,” his sister Salome Lerosion told reporters.
The family filed a missing person report at Kileleshwa Police Station, but they are yet to receive any information on his whereabouts, from the police or anyone else.
Lenengwesi’s disappearance has also left his mother distraught.
“I am appealing for help from the government. If you have Solomon with you, bring him to me. We are suffering,” Lenengwesi’s mother said.
Lenengwesi’s family has also appealed to the public to help them find their beloved brother.
