Courtesy of prolific correspondent Snoggeramus, we learn of a funeral with a sequel.
A Ugandan civil servant instructed his wife to bury him with a cash amount of Sh 6 million [Uganda shillings - equivalent to about US $1,600 at present exchange rates].
The money was meant to appease God for the deceased’s earthly sins.
. . .
Even though the exact sin was not stated, he asked his brother and sister to ensure that his wife does as he instructed.
Uganda’s Daily Monitor news portal reports that he died after a protracted illness and was buried in his ancestral home in the northern Lira district of the country. The portal adds that the metallic coffin he was buried in cost Sh 500,000.
His will was however ‘violated’ over the weekend after his remains were exhumed and the money removed by his clan members.

Well, they complied with his request - at first, at least. One trusts the deceased maintained his (de)composure as his coffin was subsequently rifled . . .
