Mathare North Member of County Assembly (MCA)-elect, Eko Dydda, is reportedly missing.

His wife, Cynthia Ayugi (alias Galia) noted that she has been looking for the gospel musician but could not find him.

She added that she had last seen him early on Friday morning, August 12 when he left Stima Members Grounds in Ruaraka in disguise, dressed as a woman.

He had gone to the premises to collect his certificate prior to the incident.

“After coming from Stima Member Club disguised as a lady, we had to go different ways. We met around Jogoo Road then went different ways because cops were calling him telling him his life was in danger.”

“Later, he texted me saying he is not okay," she told Nairobi News.

She added that she had gone to Buruburu Police Station only to be sent to Ruaraka Police Station.

"They said we couldn’t report there, we should go to IEBC and report that is what the police boss in the station said. I was not allowed to record anything," she added.

According to multiple media reports, the Vidole hitmaker was being trailed by a group of young men whom Ayugi claimed had been sent to finish him off.

After he was handed the certificate hastily, they surrounded him and his bodyguard and also attacked a person who was filming the proceedings through his phone camera. They let him go upon realising that the footage would potentially draw attention.

The matter came to the limelight after David Muthengi, alias Holy Dave to expose that Eko Dydda was missing.

"He won and he is here to take his certificate, but results have changed and were given to ODM candidate and now they have surrounded him and chanting that he has to die because they cannot afford to see him become the MCA," read his tweet on Thursday afternoon.

Eko Dydda was vying as an independent candidate amongst a handful of celebrities to have emerged victorious in the elections.

Comedian Jalang'o won the Lang'ata parliamentary race under the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket while Nairobi blogger, Robert Alai secured the Kileleshwa MCA seat.

Self-proclaimed number one hype man Davidson Ngibuini alias DNG won the MCA seat in the Woodley Kenyatta Golf Course on a UDA ticket.

DNG beat P-Unit’s Gabriel ‘Gabu’ Kagundu, who was vying under Musalia Mudavadi's ANC party before he conceded.
