A man believed to be dead was found by family members in a bar,

guzzling bottles of beer as his burial rites was underway. The burial

of Wilson Oluoch was to be held on Saturday, the 25th of March at his

village in Awendu, Migori, Kenya, however, what was supposed to be a

sad day was transformed into one of feasting after the family got a

message saying someone who looked like the deceased was found in a bar

and upon investigation it turned out to be true.



Wilson Oluoch, a commercial motorcyclist, went missing and after he

did not return days after, his family assumed the worst. When a

decomposing body was found in a nearby sugarcane plantation, Oluoch's

family took the body to be that of their son so they took it to the

mortuary and began to make burial preparations.



On the day slated for the burial, after the grave had been dug and

mourners began to arrive, the family got a hopeful message that their

son was alive and merrying at a bar in Rongo.



It turned out to be true and his family and well-wishers converted the

food and drinks and other preparations meant for mourning into

celebratory meals.



Oluoch revealed that he was ashamed of himself for returning home

drunk so he decided to leave home and start a new life elsewhere. His

parents spoke to newsmen and expressed their joy at having their son

alive.



Oluoch's family have contacted the council of elders to begin

cleansing rituals to enable him enter into the compound again.



The corpse the family had earlier thought was that of their son has

now been returned to the morgue.
