Narok - Residents of Oleran Chemwokter village in Narok County are in shock after a man they buried five days ago resurfaced.

Paul Kiric, 46, was reported to have gone missing three years ago, with a search for him ending at the Narok mortuary where he was believed to have been taken after he was said to have drowned at a nearby river, Citizen TV reported.

His family "buried him" five days ago, only for the father of four to return from a nearby village where he said he had gone in search of a job.

The family is now planning to exhume the body they buried after realising that they buried a wrong person. The family will also undergo cleansing according to traditions.

Narok County has been experiencing perennial flooding, with reports indicating that over 10 people died during the El Nino rains that started in October last year.
