Wife crashes her own funeral, horrifying her husband, who had paid to have her killed –

February 6, 2016


Noela Rukundo sat in a car outside her home in Melbourne, Australia, watching as the last few mourners filed out. They were leaving a funeral — her funeral.

Finally, she spotted the man she’d been waiting for. She stepped out of her car, and her husband put his hands on his head in horror.

“Is it my eyes?” she recalled him saying. “Is it a ghost?”

“Surprise! I’m still alive!” she replied.

    This story is another reminder that Africa in general must deal with the weak justice system. One wonders if the husband would be promptly arrested if he were to escape to Burundi?

    Second chance at life for the beautiful woman!

      Dear Folakemi,

      Thanks very much for your comments.

      You are very correct about the injustice that plagues most of Africa’s “justice” system. To make things worse, I do not believe Africans expect – pardon me, may be deserve – any better. Imagine, Africans down there are reportedly blaming the woman for the arrest of the evil husband! If he’s able to escape back to Burundi, I agree he may escape the justice he deserves.

        Very sad, isn’t it. This is the part that is most upsetting our people that have enjoyed better justice system and yet would like offenders to be kept in secret just because the persob is one of ‘ours’. Little wonder that we are still struggling.

        Thank you too for posting this. This is really one of the many reasons I enjoy reading your work, we need many more elders reasoning the right way and showing the younger generations to put effort.

        Thanks, Dear Folakemi for the very generous words and sentiments.

        We are in the age of “sharing”, and older people can, and should take cues from younger generation because we can never stop learning, tabi, can we!

    That man should be kept in prison for life. The woman should thank God that her life was preserved because God wants to use her in one way or the other. It’s just one of the slimmest pity from hit men. I am happy with her that she lives to tell this story. Whoever God does not want to be killed by another man, can never be killed.

      Dear Fatai,

      Thanks v much for this. A very amazing and dramatic turn of events in a story that would have seen that poor woman killed. The husband definitely belong in jail for the rest of his life.

      Sincere regards,
