Aged man buys coffin for his ‘future’ burial, says the two he bought earlier are now old-fashioned



An 87-year-old man from Busia, Kenya gets for himself, a new coffin for his “future” burial ceremony.

The aged man identified as Aloise Otieng’ Ng’ombe is said to have bought a coffin worth Ksh58,000 for his yet-to-be-known burial.

According to K2TV, Aloise had also bought coffins in 2009 and 2012.

TopNaija understands that the father of 18 children said the new coffin which is currently being stored at his shop in Obekai area, will serve as his future coffin since the previous coffins were old-fashioned.

He also disclosed that buying a coffin before his death will pass a message to members of the society.

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.”
