He said he first saw the photos on Citizen TV,

I saw my pictures on TV but the name was not mine. They said I was a cleaner at JKIA. The next day a female prison warden told me the full story and inmates started calling me kifo (death) and maiti (corpse). I cried a lot.

Speaking to Nation, Shivonje’s further said,

They have damaged my son’s reputation and he needs to be cleansed after being labeled dead.
