The death of stowaway who was earlier identified as Paul Manyasi has taken a new twist over identity.
Parents’ of the ‘stowaway’ now claim he’s still alive after confirming to Sky News that the bag of the stowaway who fell from a KQ aircraft en route to London, is similar to one their son had.
They even said his name was Cedric Shivonje Isaac and not Paul Manyasi.
Thomas Wanyama, a close friend to the 29-year-old told NTV he (Manyasi) was fond of using different names and he knew him with a different name.
He said they lived in Congo area in Kawangware for a few months before he left to leave on his own.
..even at some point when he was arrested in August this year, the name he used was different yet his ID had a different name,’ he said.
Wanyama said he’s confused about his friend’s identity.
Upon seeing him on news yesterday, he had a different name again and I was confused with what was going on.
His girlfriend and colleague at Colnet, which has so far denied knowing Paul Manyasi, also confirmed that the dead stowaway was him. He went missing in late June this year.
I CALLED HIS PHONE AND IT WAS OFF. WHEN WE CAME IN THE MORNING THE FOLLOWING DAY THE SUPERVISOR CALLED US AND TOLD US THERE IS SOMEBODY MISSING. [THE SUPERVISOR HAD TOLD THEM] WE ARE NOT SURE OF THE PERSON SO WE KEEP IT A SECRET UNTIL WE KNOW THE PERSON.
When she was shown a computerised photo of Paul, she said,
THEY LOOK ALIKE BUT PAUL WASN’T DARK – NOT DARK – BUT THE FACE RESEMBLES PAUL.
The two were in a serious relationship and while talking about the man she loved, she said,
PAUL WAS A NICE GUY. HE WAS JUST A JOVIAL PERSON. I JUST LIKED HIM THE WAY HE WAS. WE HAD AGREED ONE DAY MAYBE WE COULD MAKE A FAMILY. I JUST FEEL LIKE I LOST SOMEONE WHO I LOVED SO MUCH – YES, I MISS HIM.
