A Burundian woman has recently gone viral on social media after she recounted how she attended her own funeral.
Noela Rukundo, a mother of eight, has returned to Burundi from Australia to attend her stepmother's funeral back in 2015.
During her stay in the hotel, Noela received a call from her husband who asked her to step outside to get some fresh air.
However, a man suddenly approached her with a gun and asked her to get into a nearby car. She was then driven to Bujumbura, a capital in Burundi.
When they arrived at the designated location, Noela was tied to a chair where she was asked, "What did you do to this man? Why has this man asked us to kill you?" to which Noela replied, "Which man? Because I don't have any problem with anybody."
According to a report made by The Telegraph (authored by Harriet Alexander), the leader of the gang then made a phone call, only to reveal that the person behind her kidnapping was her very own husband, Balenga Kalala.
One of the kidnappers also told Noela that they weren't going to kill her as they do not kill women and children.
She was then released by her kidnappers after extorting more money from Balenga. The group let Noela go after telling her to inform other women that they shouldn't stay with their violent husbands.
When she returned to Melbourne, Noela watched her funeral from afar. When most of the mourners left the place, she eventually confronted her husband about his crimes.
Noela reported Balenga to the police who first denied any involvement about the kidnapping. However, when he was presented with a recording of a phone conversation, he broke down.
Balenga was sentenced to nine years in prison after having pleaded guilty to incitement to murder.
