`A mysterious thing happened during a burial in a village in Mumias, Kakamega County, where unexpectedly a coffin burst into flames and left mourners shocked.
The fire is said to have started from the interior of the Coffin of the late Evaline Ndombi. The flame consumed the deceased clothes and the body suffered from a few burns on the legs.
According to the family members the deceased seemed to be angered since her wishes before her death were not adhered to. They said the said the deceased did not want a new house put up before she is buried but this was disregarded and they believe the occurrence at the burial was due to her anger.
This has forced the family to change the burial date to Saturday using the same partially burnt coffin.
