Nickolson was said to have misplaced the bag while on safari in the Maasai Mara game reserve with other people. A police officer and airport employees discovered the bag, and Nickolson was contacted after it was screened for explosives.

“All the money totalling to around $19,000 and some thousands of Kenya shillings were all intact. All my cards were found intact. All other valuables which included a regalia given to me by my late grandmother was also intact. It was a daydream for me,” Nickolson said in an email expressing appreciation to Kenyan police.

Nickolson also stated that the money in his possession was for the comfort and movement of his group. In an interview with Citizen TV, the airport’s security supervisor, Joseph Kabang, stated that “integrity is a core value” that its employees uphold.
