Tshekedi Pitso, who was 72 years old at the time, had bought himself a 1980s E500 Mercedes Benz adding to a fleet of Mercedes Benz that he owed.
Pitso shocked his family when he told them he wanted to be buried inside his favourite car (1980s E500 Mercedes Benz).
“My uncle made it clear that he wanted to be buried inside his car.
He was a lover of Mercedes Benz and as a family we had to grant him his wish,” she said.
Villagers watched in awe as Pitso was car was towed to his grave in the family grave yard.
UDM leader Bantu Holomisa said he was not surprised that Pitso wanted to be buried in his car.
“This is so like Pitso, he was an old stock, however, he was also very streetwise,” Holomisa said.
This is not the first bizarre funeral to have taken place. In 2018 a man buried his father in brand-new BMW.
