News sources indicated that, his relatives reportedly visited the bar and found 'bodaboda' rider Dennis still there, not dead but dead drunk as he tried to drown his sorrows.

He explained that he had felt so ashamed after returning home drunk recently that he had planned to slip away and make a new life elsewhere.

His family and the rest of the village rejoiced that he had been found alive and turned plans for a wake into a celebration party.

However, elders of Giriama culture said that cleansing rituals would have to be carried out before he could be allowed back into the homestead.

The dead body of the man thought to have been Dennis's was however returned to the local morgue in Mwishomoroni and still awaits identification.
