87-year-old man buys himself new coffin, claims the previous two are old-fashioned



A Kenyan man aged 87, has bought himself a new coffin for his “future” burial ceremony.


Aloise Otieng’ Ng’ombe who hails from Busia, reportedly bought a coffin worth Ksh58,000.


According to K2TV, the father of 18 had also bought coffins in 2009 and 2012.


He claimed that the new coffin will serve as his future coffin since the previous coffins were old-fashioned.


Aloise said, “I want this to be a lesson to my community at large. You may lack basic needs when you are alive.


“But when you die, people will slaughter bulls, and buy you nice clothes and shoes yet you will be long gone.


“That is why I decided to plan for a send-off befitting my status in society.”
