Mourners were aghast when they witnessed Brighton Dama Zanthe, who passed away after a long term illness at age 34, twitching in his coffin during his funeral in Zimbabwe last week. Many at the funeral ran for their lives, fearing that the young man had come back to haunt them, reports the New Zimbabwe.

As the young man moved around, many of his friends and family who had come to pay their respects stumbled over one another as they hightailed out of the funeral service.

Lot Gaka, who had been a friend and employer of the deceased, managed to keep his wits about him and sprung into action. He approached the coffin, snatched off the blanket and called an ambulance. After spending two days in intensive care, Zanthe was discharged from the hospital.

“I don’t know what happened, and I only remember being on a life support system in hospital,” the New Zimbabwe reports him as saying.

People are still incredulous of the fact that Zanthe had resurrected after being ill for so long. As a matter of fact, Gaka actually expected to receive a call from Zanthe’s wife with news that he had passed away.

“Zanthe had been on sick leave for some time and everyone at work was aware that he was critical,” Gaka told the New Zimbabwe. “We would visit him at his home in Mkoba 14. I was not surprised when I received a call from Zanthe’s wife on Monday night of last week saying that her husband had died.”

Before Zanthe woke up from a sleep that all thought was permanent, his body had been placed in a coffin. A body viewing procession followed which ended with the deceased being transported to a mortuary. According to Gaka, it was during the viewing that the twitching was spotted.

Zanthe says people are still stunned by all that took place at his funeral. But he goes on to say, “Everything is history to me. What I can only confirm is that people gathered at my house to mourn, but I was given another chance and I am alive.  I feel okay now.”
