Locals of Oloolua village in Kajiado County were treated to a bizarre spectacle after a corpse of a 16-year-old boy allegedly “refused” to be buried.

Relatives of Juma Okwale who went to retrieve his body from Nairobi City Mortuary said that everything was normal and nothing strange was noticed even by mourners at his Oloolua home until the body was taken to its graveside to be buried.

It is said that as soon as Okwale’s body arrived at Ngong Cemetery, mourners present claim the boy’s coffin literally refused to be taken to his grave.

It took the intervention of the boy’s father and elders present to “persuade” the dead to accept being laid to rest.

The boy’s father said that after “consulting’’ with his dead son, he was instructed to meet some conditions before the corpse was buried.

Okwale was controversially lynched by a mob in Oloolua for allegedly participated in robbing a local shop.

The boy allegedly demanded that a metal which was used by the owner of the shop to break his skull is buried with him since he was innocent.

Hundreds of mourners who had turned up for the burial took the body to the shop, where they retrieved the said pierce of metal.

The irate mourners thereafter torched the shop with the owner managing to flee.

It is said that the body was finally buried peacefully after the demands were met.

In a similar incident elsewhere, the body of an elderly woman in Malava, Kakamega County refused to be entombed after what eyewitnesses said the coffin grew too heavy to be lifted from the trolley.

The shocked mourners had to abandon the burial ceremony for a while to allow elders consult with the deceased.

Few hours thereafter, some moaners were forcefully evacuated from the venue and a bull slaughtered as an appeasement to the dead before she was finally buried.

It is said that the mourners who were evacuated (some being her relatives) apparently had some unsolved scores with the woman, and she was not happy of their presence at her funeral.

Another similar scenario involved a 25 year- old man whose dead body allegedly stuck on the streets of Eldoret town for more than 20 hours for refusing to be transported to his home in Busia County where he was to be laid to rest.

The bizarre moment brought the streets to a standstill as thrilled onlookers thronged the place to take a glimpse of the unfolding.

Eye witnesses claimed that all the vehicles that had been brought to ferry the corpse home developed mechanical problems one after another.

What surprised many was the fact that the vehicles then took off without any problem as soon as the coffin was offloaded from them.

It took the intervention of close family members to “persuade” their dead brother to accept being transported home.

After what sources present termed as intense persuasions, the body finally gave in to the pleas and was transported home and buried without further hitches.

Information has it that some corpses went to the extremes of sticking their tongues out of their mouths and even biting them, and no efforts to push them back in yielded fruits.

Other corpses allegedly turned their heads in a direction and refuse to be turned back to the upright posture unless their necks were broken.

Morticians have given accounts of copses opening their eyes or mouth wide open and refused to be closed despite efforts from staff, until certain terms or rituals were performed by relatives.

In other incidences, the morticians said the dead refused to wear certain clothes, or refused to unclench their hands. And to some horrifying incidences where some copses producing wailing sounds or clicks to express their frustrations.

Even coffins have fallen off from trolleys despite being firmly anchored into place as well as graves suddenly filling with water rendering the burial impossible.

Moreover, some mourners have reported copses swelling to near burst, frowning their faces as well as shedding tears.

A swarm of bees chased away moaners attending a burial in Bungoma earlier last year.

In a village in Machakos County, some mourners had to flee from the ceremony for allegedly receiving slaps from invisible hands.

No scientific research has yet solved the mystery behind such incidences. Although basing on the many accounts where traditional rituals were applied, it can therefore be concluded that these phenomenon are cultural.

Some people link the bizarre scenarios to witchcraft although in the traditional African culture, some communities believe such instances occur to show that the dead are actually alive in another dimension and are watching over the living relatives and hence trying to communicate with them.

The examples above portray signs that the dead are not happy with their death especially if unclear circumstances surround the death. What is your take?
