Embu County Assembly Speaker Kariuki Mate was found wandering on Limuru road, next to St Pauls University at midnight on Thursday.
According to the Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno, Mr Mate was taken to the Gigiri Police Station by a lorry driver who picked him up after he flagged down the lorry which was on its way to Nairobi.
The lorry driver who picked him up could not understand what he was saying and decided to take him to the police station.
The police officers also found him incoherent and took him to the Aga Khan hospital where he is currently admitted.
This comes hours after a Pangani Police Station-based detective who was charged with his abduction and confinement was released on a Sh100,000 bond by a court on Thursday.
Mr Nicholas Muriuki Kangangi denied having anything to do with the speaker's disappearance.
Mrs Caroline Wangari, Mr Mate's wife, told Mr Justice Weldon Korira at the Milimani Law Courts that Mr Mate disappeared while in the hands of a police officer and demanded his unconditional release.
The speaker went missing on May 19 at 4:30pm while on official duty at a Nairobi hotel
