Police reports have stated that the abducted Kenyan businessman linked to a Tanzanian opposition MP is still missing after reports surfaced that he was allegedly dumped in Mombasa.
Raphael Ongangi faced the wrath of neighbouring state security officials in Dar-es-Salaam on June 24 at the intersection of Karume-Msasani Road.
However, police state that they are not aware of the possibly illegal deportation and also their attempt to trace the businessman has borne no fruits. According to Standard, police have searched all health facilities in Mombasa.
The abduction has been linked to Ongangi’s links to President John Pombe Magufuli’s critic Mzitto Kabwe.
The MP said that the move was aimed at accessing his personal information on devices confiscated by detectives using his Kenyan confidant.
“I was surprised to see my pages active. The only other person who has access to the accounts is Mr Ongangi. It’s surprising that days after his abduction, my accounts are still active,” Zitto said as reported by Nation.
The people who announced his freedom included activist Boniface Mwangi who alleged that Ongangi was dumped somewhere in the coastal city.
"Raphael Ongangi is Free. He was abducted in Dar es Salaam last week and dumped in Mombasa this morning," Mwangi posted.
