A 70-year-old man simply identified as Leo has reportedly dug his own grave, bought his casket and refreshments in preparation for his burial.

In a chat with AfriMaxTV, Leo said he decided to make all the preparations for burial now that he’s still alive because he doesn’t want his corpse to be a burden to anyone. He added that members of his community are poor and find it hard to raise money to bury their dead.

AfriMaxTV also revealed that Leo got cement and bricks for his grave and paid for his pallbearers in advance.

Leo, who has nine wives, noted that he has been using his time to celebrate his remaining days on earth as he’s certain that his end is near and he wants to prepare in any way he can.
