A Few nudes and a handful condoms for the road our friend, said mourners in a funeral of a man who loved prostitutes.
According to my Zimbabwe burial of a well-known Dangamvura rank marshal turned into a strip show last Wednesday after mourners both men and women went naked apparently mimicking the deceased who was well known for hiring the services of commercial sex workers.
Ladies of questionable morals dared their male counterparts to engage in sexual intimacy at the graveside in full glare of Lawrence Masanga’s family members, relatives and neighbours.
As respectable relatives tried to give their beloved one a decent send-off, condoms were thrown into the grave, while nude dances and foul language overshadowed proceedings at Dangamvura Cemetery.
Had it not been for the intervention of level-headed mourners who stood their ground to bring order, a free porn show was in the making between an alleged commercial sex worker and a dreadlocked ragamuffin, after the pair apparently went into a compromising position to become intimate.
All this, they shouted, was what the deceased Lawrence did and wanted. “I have never seen anything like this. It is unacceptable because it denigrates the very process of burying a deceased person.
“What pains most is that these things were happening in full glare of children who also attended the burial. What lessons are they going to learn from such wicked acts? The language was so strong and their actions were worse,” said an elderly woman who attended the burial.
Before the burial, the coffin bearing the deceased was driven around the city by touts who caused all sorts of problems to fellow road users. This was followed by rampant looting of items at vending stalls that are located along the road to the cemetery.
This is wrong but hilarious as hell that this Marshall and his stripper mourners are going to.
