A family in Gaturi village in Kiharu Murang’a is in confusion after their daughter they thought they buried 27 years ago resurfaced two days ago.
Hannah Wangari is said to have left her home back in 1994 after a dispute when she was 15 years old and after her family’s effort of searching her became futile, they gave up on the search.
In 2006 however, another woman bearing the same name as her was very ill at Mathari Hospital in Nyeri and she was looking for her family after being apart for 12 years.
In a striking coincidence, the two women came from the same village, had similar names and their parents bore the same names.
Wangari who is now 42 years old, a mother of five and a grandmother said she went to work as a househelp in Limuru Kiambu and later got married.
Their marriage was however rocked in financial constraints which made it difficult for her to come back home for lack of fare.
