Shock as villagers gather to beat the dead with sticks for dying without paying his debts

The video that has gone viral on platform X, formerly Twitter, has stirred different emotions as members of the community gathered to shame the deceased for embezzling their money before committing suicide.

According to preliminary descriptions before obtaining the video, it was explained that the deceased man had emptied the community savings purse.

After depleting the funds stealthily, the man realized he would be discovered and demanded to pay back when his ability to repay was limited, thus deciding to take his own life.

In the video, amidst the villagers’ anger, they arranged his final journey well, but before burying him, they decided to teach him a lesson with severe beatings for dying with their debt.

In the circulating video, the coffin of the deceased is seen being opened, and the community members lined up carrying sticks in their hands to beat the man.

The incident is reported to have occurred in a village in Angola.

The video was first shared on the microblogging platform with the caption:

“He embezzled the community’s savings then killed himself after exhausting them… this is how they teach him a lesson… Angola”

However, it’s worth noting that in many communities, especially in western Kenya, a person who commits suicide by hanging is subjected to severe beatings before being removed, as a way of condemning the spirit of suicide.
