It’s a shame that most people will not get to attend their own funeral, but not Noela Rukundo of Burundi, Africa.

As her supposed funeral ended, her husband began to leave, but not before Runkundo hopped out of her car to surprise him. Five days earlier, the man had allegedly ordered a hit on his wife of 10 years.

When I get out of the car, he saw me straight away. He put his hands on his head and said, ‘Is it my eyes? Is it a ghost?‘” she told BBC.

Surprise! I’m still alive!” she said.

According to the report, days prior, Runkundo had traveled from her home in Melbourne to Burundi for her stepmother’s funeral. After the funeral, she returned to her hotel room and spoke to her husband, Balenga Kalala, about the day’s events and how sad she was.

Her husband then suggested she go outside to take in some fresh air. As she stepped outdoors, she approached by a gunman, blindfolded, and instructed to get into a car. She was ushered into a building and tied to a chair. The men tasked with killing her informed Runkundo that her husband hired them and later confirmed it by getting him on the phone. She heard Kalala say, “Kill her.”

Rukundo then fainted, and when she awoke, the kidnappers decided to let her go on the side of the road, leaving her with a cell phone, recordings of their phone conversations with Kalala, and receipts for the $7,000 they allegedly received in payment. “We just want you to go back, to tell other stupid women like you what happened,” the men told her.

Kalala pleaded guilty to incitement to murder in December of last year and was sentenced to nine years in prison.
