Nkosi Jacob

This is really a macabre story. A good case for Anthropologists to dig in to understand how things like this happen. But in my humble opinion I guess exhuming the corpse was a source of a health hazard given that it had started decomposing even before burial.

Ma Mary

We must correct our reporters when they use language that is implicitly disrespectful and prejudicial of women. In all my years, I have never heard the term,"abandon his matrimonial home" being used in referring to a man but it is always used to put women down. There are so many reasons why families split; abandonment is just one, but it is always stuck on women. The usual event is that husbands and wives separate or divorce but the mother is not allowed custody of the children, even if the children are better off in her care. That is because according to the antique law, children belong to the man. It is just another stupid law just like the law on homosexuality that is causing so much trouble today and diverting attention from important things.

I do not claim to understand the whole thing about exhuming the corpse. Plainly disgusting, whether she is a woman or a man.

Pascal

Ma Mary and others,
It is usually said "if you don't touch bitter leaves your hands will not be bitter".This family will have nothing to fear if they are not responsible for the death of that woman's son.All is centered around confidence.She has lost confidence in that family and believes her son's death was not natural and the razors put in the hands of that dead son are meant to send him out to fight those who killed him.But in case his death was natural,then he will not act in any other way.This practice has a very well defined principle which follows but the truth.This woman no matter how strong she is can not change it.It is only the truth that she wants to know.It will not be long for the gost of the death young man to start hunting for his killers if at all his death was caused by someone.The gost will not visit an innocent person nor even be seen by an innocent person.Let that family be at peace so long as their hands are clearn.

Glenn

Pascal,

Its true, the family should be at peace if their "hands are clean". Its a petty that there is nothing as natural death for none believers. Don't get me wrong, I know people kill others but at times, we should consider the circumstances surrounding each death. For example, commit suicide (drink poison) now and die, there must be this or that uncle, aunt, brother, sister etc who "pushed" you to do so. That is the society we have been born into and we should try to understand it as such.

Francis Abi

Am a member of this family.SHE HAS BLOOD IN HER HANDS ALREADY. Will post you some details.My the SOUL of my late brother Rest in Perfect Peace.Amen

Beri

Amazing, Pascal do you really believe that the ghost can come out and go after his killer?. I will be happy if I could do that kind of voodoo. Well it seems as if Francis Abi will have something interesting to tell us. Let’s wait and see what he interns to tell us.

Me

Cameroonians will never cease to amuse me. Stop worrying yourselves over trivial issues. Yes the boy is dead and gone, sorry about that but then the sripture says, Vengeance is of the Lord. Let God be the judge.No one can tell what caused his death. So just let sleeping dogs lie please. May his soul rest in the Lord.

bridget

Dear Mr.Hypocritical fake name called ME,
If this is truely trivial you would have ignored it without any comment.You have just validated its importance with a powerful biblical allusion.It is news worthy that is why this young man spent time to relate the story.You are just so, so stupid.

Enih Njineku

Thank you Nkosi,
It is about time we get comments like this that point out the sexism that exist in our society. I remember during my growing up years how often I heard such remarks about women who have left an abusive relationship. Men who cheat or leave their wives are said to do so because the wives apparently did not take good care of them. A large percentage of women stay in bad relationships as a result just to avoid society's judgement, in addition to the abuse. This paradigm must be addressed so that we can begin to see a shift, and lay blame only where it is due.

Enih Njineku

Bridget, if you are going to blog, be mature about it and do not be insulting. Everyone has a right to their opinion and should not be called 'stupid'.
Thank you.
