August 16, 2016 – Family Caught On Video Beating Up Corpse Of Man Who Committed Suicide In Kenya

In a rather bizarre move, area residents of a village in Kakamega Kenya decided to take law into their hands when they took cane and beat up the lifeless body of a suicide victim.

The late man identified as 36-year-old Alusiola Nimrod was found dangling from the roof of his house.

Residents and family members of the deceased brought down the body before venting their anger on the his corpse.

However it was stated that the act is a tradition in the community.

    Maybe it is devastation felt by the living that informed the custom and the whipping of the lifeless body is meant to express the Communitiy’s disapproval of the act and possibly serve as deterrent to other people. I don’t think the custom is odd, just an expression of excruciating pain by a people. Very sad indeed!

    I think such cultural way of venting there rage against whoever committed suicide in a way to discourage others from such act is just too primitive. Because to outside world it is greater foolishness and madness. They have to discard such traditional practises because at the time of death,the bible says the body is lifeless. So why are they fooling themselves?

    I ADMIT that this story made me laugh so hard. Customs! When people say there’s no use flogging a dead horse, I bet they did not consider this case. As futile and silly as this practice may seem, the message is effectively delivered; and it is exclusively meant for the living, just as every sermon, prayer and religious observance that holds in a funeral is meant for those who are still alive, to order their lives according to what they believe
