A Ghanaian woman has been seen burying her late husband with a live snake.
In a video circulating on social media, the widow was spotted putting the snake inside husband’s grave with a live snake that supposedly killed him.
The python was seen hanging around her neck until it was time to say her final words as pallbearers got ready to carry the body to its final resting place.
A background voice narrating why she embarked on the ritual said the snake bit the tongue of the deceased and that was how he met his untimely death. Hence she thought it apt to bury him with what killed him.
According to some friends, the young man used to play with snakes and his close python bit his tongue when he was trying to put it into his mouth.
The wife was seen putting one of his snakes into the casket as part of burial rituals for her late husband.
