A coffin that was dumped in the middle of a dusty road has had the small village in the Transkaai. The military had to be called in to try and move the coffin but failed.
The story around the incidents reads like fiction. It is alleged that a husband killed his wife after she questioned him on his extra marital affairs. The confrontation is said to have gone physical and the husband hit her with a sharp object and she died on the spot. However, it is reported the wive’s family refused to accept the death of their daughter and demanded compensation from the husband before burying their daughter.
The husband tried to negotiate with the family because he did not have the R50 000 and 32 cows they wanted. Things got strange when the coffin was being taken to the grave yard. A source said , “As they took it, all the coffin bearers started feeling week and had to put it on the ground. When they tried to lift it up again, it was extremely heavy, they could not lift it”
Strong men were summoned to lift the coffin but all failed. It was ten they realised they were dealing with the supernatural. Upon realising this, the husband, who is a soldier, asked his friends to help him, but they also failed to move the coffin an inch.
None of the woman’s family members attended the scene. And when contacted, they refused to go to the scene.
“We phoned them and the father said he does not have a dead daughter. He said we should go to him as he had given us a chance to make things right and we snubbed him” The emotional husband narrated.
It was only after the husband sourced R21 ooo and 9 cattle did they finally manage to move the coffin. But he was told to get the balance before August this year or he was going to see hell on earth.
