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.
