Some people become famous for their funerals rather than their deeds through lifetime.
52-year-old Charles Obong from Uganda was a senior personnel officer at the Ministry of Public Service for a decade. He died after a protracted illness and was buried in his ancestral home in the northern Lira district of the country.
In his will, he stated that his wife should deposit a huge amount of money in his coffin after his death. The same was indeed confirmed by his son-in-law.
As per Obong, this money was to be given to God, on the Day of Judgement as an offertory so that his sins could be pardoned and forgiven. Even though Charles did not mention how severe his sins were, he had asked his brother and sister to ensure that his wife follows the instructions as per his will.
Daily Monitor news portal reported that the metallic coffin in which he was buried cost Sh 500,000 (approx INR 62k). While he was indeed buried with loads of cash around him, the will was violated over the weekend. His own clan members removed the money after his remains were exhumed.
