Kenenisa had no intention of running away when he left his hometown Harar one early morning. He was hoping to go to Nazareth and maybe even Addis and go back home that same day, after a little exploring. When he reached Addis, it was already very late and he couldn’t make his way back home, or find a place to stay. People who found him wondering on the streets took him to the police that same night. Kenenisa says that he has all he wants and needs back home and wants to go back to his father and stepmother. His mother has also remarried.
