The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition claims that Hon. Antony Oluoch, a lawmaker from Mathare, was kidnapped on Thursday, July 20, in the late evening while filling up his car at a Shell gas station close to Nakumatt Junction on Ngong Road.
The coalition said on social media that he was driven off in a car with Tanzanian license plates.
The coalition did note, though, that it is still being determined where lawmaker Oluoch has been taken.

Around the site, several Subaru vehicles could be seen. Where he has been transported, though, is still unknown. Through a tweet on Thursday night, the coalition promised to keep everyone informed.
