A forward-looking grave digger, who did not want to forfeit his digging fee after the corpse is buried in the grave, resorted to lying in it himself, to demand full payment for his services before the bereaved family would be allowed to bury their deceased.
In the photos, the said grave digger is seen lying in the 6 feet ditch face-up, with one of his legs folded, while his two hands appear as if he was pressing his phone.
A twitter user who posted the photos captioned the photos: “The man lying in the grave is not actually the deceased. He is the person who dug the grave. He wasn’t paid and During The Burial.. he jumped into the grave that no burial until his full amount is paid with interest.”
Its Only in Africa 😂😂😂😂

Many people, believed to be the bereaved family members and sympathisers, are also seen gathered around the grave, ostensibly to talk the adamant grave digger out of his drastic decision.
