- James Mwaura ( in blue suit) is reunited with his family members
A Kenyan man, James Mwaura, who went missing 47 years ago has been reunited with his family in Molo, Nakuru County.
Mwaura’s whereabouts turned into a mystery in 1974 when he was sent to the shop to buy rice for the family. He was 23 then.
According to CitizenDigital, he reportedly lost his way in the process, only to find himself in the nation’s capital, Nairobi with no money and no kin to turn to as he found that his siblings who stayed in the city had also relocated.
He then hitched a ride to Naro Moru in Nyeri County where he started a new life and later started a family after he married a woman he met there.
Years later, like everybody else these days, Maura, now 70, was scrolling through Facebook when he came across a familiar face.
He sent the person a message in his inbox and it turned out to be one of his nephews.
The two engaged each other in some chit-chatsy and agreed to meet up on Wednesday, before the family reunion eventually happened on Thursday, July 22.
Mwaura, who arrived home in a blue suit, informed the family members that he is now happily married and blessed with three children and four grand children.
