She stated: “They cooked food which was in the refrigerator and ate in the kitchen before they disappeared.”

Additionally, Seroney further noted that the two police officers who were assigned to guard the doctor’s house will be questioned.

Dr. Torres (a family physician) and Dr. Juan Ramos (orthopedic) are the two Cuban doctors attached to the Homa Bay county referral hospital.

They are among the 100 Cuban doctors working in Kenya after the two governments strick a deal in Havana last year.

In April this year, two doctors attached to the Mandera County referral were kidnapped from their station by suspected Al Shabaab militants.

Six months on, there has been no development in the rescue mission after the government ruled out paying a ransom of Ksh150 million.
