Reno Omokri says Africans need to do away with culture of spending millions to bury the dead
Reno Omokri recounted how one of the wealthiest men in the world, King Abdullah a Saudi Arabian after his death in January2015, was buried wrapped in only a white cloth in a place where other poor people were buried.
He pointed to the fact that Muslim believe we are all equal at birth and at death and it is a way to honour God and their principle is spend money on the living and improving the lives of the living. Reno cited references in the Bible were distinct figures such as Moses, King David and others were buried in the simplest way.
The former presidential aide pointed to the fact that culture is dynamic and not static hence we need to evolve from certain cultures and his comments comes after viral video of guests spraying millions of naira at Obi Cubana’s mom’s burial.
