But on the day slated for the burial on Saturday, March 25, 2017, while the family and friends gathered to commence the funeral rites, message got to the family that the man they had presumed dead  man believed to be dead was in actually with friends in a bar in the mining town of Rongo guzzling beer and making merry with friends.

The family quickly dispatched emissaries to go and find out if what they heard was true and true to the report, Oluoch was found in the Central Inn Bar in Rongo Town drinking beer with friends.

When asked why he left home, Oluoch revealed that he was ashamed of himself for returning home drunk so he decided to leave home and start a new life elsewhere.
