In 2016, Kamba was presumed dead after a devastating car crash in the Republic of Congo. However, a German newspaper Bild recently discovered that the former athlete is alive and well.
Currently, Hiannick Kamba is working for an energy company in Germany. He aimed to clear things up by telling a German prosecutor that his friends not only abandoned him but robbed him too. Kamba, who is from the Republic of Congo, had his identification, cell phone, and whatever money he had on him stolen by his “friends”.
Kamba told the prosecutor that he reached a German embassy in the Congolese capital of Kinshasa in 2018 to prove his existence, but losing his identification made the process difficult and extremely time-consuming, according to the New York Post.
