The man who also has nine wives bought drinks, a coffin, and every other thing for the burial ceremony

A 70-year-old man, Leo, dug his grave in preparation for his death. The man said he had to take that step because the poor members of his community found it financially hard to bury people who recently died. In a video documentary by Afrimax, the man stated that he does not want to become a burden to people after he is gone.

It’s only in Africa we leave the burden of our funeral for relatives who re already in mourning. Africans don’t ever plan fir their death. They want to go to heaven but don’t want to die. Death is a debt we must all pay so why not make it easy on ur loved ones by saving them from incurring debts on ur funeral expenses.plan your final expenses through the right insurance company or do it yourself.”

  1. In Africa funerals are celebrated in a very big way. Correct of course, birthdays come every year, marriages there may be several. Funeral there is only one.

    In some cases the big funeral celebrations may be held a full year after the death, because arrangements have to be made and money has to be collected.

    Well, as the grave is ready at least this gentleman may be buried immediately after death…
