In an earlier Facebook post made on Sunday, the good man Alai had appealed for help to trace Tom who was then missing after last being seen at the Kinoo bus stop.
I have an APPEAL. My brother Tom Alai has been missing since Thursday 26th November. He was last spotted at the Kinoo stage on the same evening (around 7pm) crossing the road from the National Oil petrol station.
He was REPORTEDLY knocked down by a speeding motorist while crossing Waiyaki Way. Witnesses report that the motorist then drove off with him claiming that he was rushing him to hospital. We have checked at Kikuyu, Thogoto, St Teresa, Kiambu, Tigoni and KNH without success.
If you have information about an unidentified patient in an hospital, please get in touch. If you know where Tom is, please get in touch too.
Tom is famously referred to as Josi, Odhiambo or Onyango by those who know him in different circumstances.
We join family and friends in mourning Tom, May God rest his soaul in eternal peace.
