A funeral has been postponed after a corpse collided with a corpse as one family buried the wrong body on Friday.
On Thursday, the first family went to the morgue to retrieve the body, which they thought belonged to them and buried it on Friday.
It was reported that on Friday afternoon when the other family went to retrieve the body of their member, they came across the son of the first family who had already been buried.
That is when the problem started, and the heads shook as it turned out that the wrong bodie had been buried.
This led to the postponement of the funeral which was supposed to be on Saturday. Both families were contacted yesterday to comment on the incident but refused complaining that the matter was too serious and would endanger their lives.
They are now expected to apply to the courts to have the body exhumed.
It's not clear why the other family claimed and buried the wrong body.
