Confusion has gripped the family of National Super Alliance (NASA) chief strategist, David Ndii, following his sudden “disappearance” on Sunday, December 3.
The controversial economist was just recently appointed by Nasa to steer the coalition’s push for the People’s Assembly and fresh elections and is said to have been at Leopard Beach Hotel in Kwale county when he was arrested.
His family say they have not been able to trace him amid reports that he was taken to Diani Police Station.
A Sunday, December 3 night statement by Nasa and seen by Zipo.co.ke however stated that Ndii’s kin were told he was not at the said police station when they went there looking for him.
Police at the station said they did not know the whereabouts of the vocal Opposition technocrat and could not also tell why he was arrested.
According to ex Prime Minister’s Raila Odinga’s adviser Salim Lone, Nasa’s lawyers both from the Coast and Nairobi are on the ground trying to find out where Ndii is and why exactly he was nabbed.
“The coalition’s lawyers, both from Nairobi and the coast region are already trying to find where he is being held,” Lone said.
As mentioned earlier, Ndii was on Friday, December 1 appointed by the Nasa to chair the coalition’s People’s Assembly National Steering Committee that is meant to push for electoral reforms following a contested electioneering.
The People’s Assembly is also expected to swear in Raila on December 12, the day Kenyans will be celebrating Jamhuri Day.
