There was drama at a Bindura burial site after family members fought during the burial of a loved one.
The incident was sparked by one of the deceased man’s sons, who opened the coffin at the place of burial, infuriating some relatives.
According to reports, the deceased man’s son, identified only as Diva, opened his father’s coffin amid chants of Ngolo, Ngolo from some mourners.
Ngolo is said to be the son’s nickname.
In a viral video, Diva opens the coffin but fails to remove the cloth covering his late father’s face.
When some male relatives tried to stop him, violence erupted.
Others supported his decision, while others opposed his decision to open the coffin at the gravesite.
“Siyai aone baba vake. Ona baba vako shamwari, musiyei aone baba vake. Pfeka mask,” shouted some mourners.
Diva responds, “ndibaba vangu,” but he was stopped by a relative.
The fighting lasted only a few minutes before a relative sealed the coffin.
According to sources, Diva and his brother ur!nated inside the grave after the coffin was lowered.
