Waluhya kwa nini lazima mfanyie mwendazake vituko na maajabu kabla azikwe?
Apparently, if you commit suicide, or died under embarrassing circumstances (eg. Panga ya haga from kukula bibi ya wenyewe), Luhya elders bury you at night (very fast), and no one is allowed to mourn. Yaani unazikwa kama umbwa. Eating/drinking is not allowed. Unazikwa watu wakiishia home on empty stomachs.
Kama hujaolewa hauna bahati. The body is treated with ka-madharau kiasi to discourage others from staying single; For males: Body is removed from the house via the window then to the grave. Then the elders insert thorns in your feet and ass to punish you for not marrying.
For ladies it’s more bizzare: A hut is built or a tent is set up. An elder will hold a mini wedding with the corpse, marry it unofficially, and lastly pertake in necrophilia. After, she is burried far away from the house. Either karibu na mto, karibu na fence, au banana tree.
Kama uliolewa bado utalijua jiji. For men especially: A random fellow will fornicate with your wife to relieve her of the burden of her deceased husband!
