There was drama in Kinangop, Nyandarua county after a man who was ‘buried’ two days ago, reappeared on Thursday to the shock of residents.

21-year-old Gicheche Mwihaki was also left in shock after discovering that he had been laid to rest by his family and friends.

The grave was still fresh and the wreaths had not yet wilted after the burial.

Gicheche went missing in September and the family reported the matter to Magumu police station.

Last month two bodies were found dumped in Ngumbi forest off the Limuru-Mai Mahiu road and taken to Naivasha subcounty hospital mortuary.

The family positively identified one of the bodies as that of Gicheche.

A postmortem was conducted on November 5 before the body was buried.

Gicheche later said that all along he had been working as a casual labourer at Longonot trading center and was not aware of his ‘death’.

“There was no TV, radio or even a mobile phone where I was working and I was shocked when I returned home only to learn that that I had been declared dead and buried,” he said.

Kinangop deputy county commissioner Peter Nyameti said the matter would be investigated afresh by DCI officers.
