South African Man Buried In His Mercedes-Benz V-Boot

A South Africa Man was buried in his Mercedes-Benz V-Boot as his last wish instead of the regular coffin. The man a 72-year-old Tshekedi Pitso made this request 2 years ago and his wish has been granted. His family was shocked about his decision to be buried in his vehicle but they had to respect it. He was strapped well in the car as you can see in the pix his seatbelt was put on.

Pitso, had earlier bought himself a Mercedes-Benz V-Boot adding to a fleet of Mercedes-Benz that he owned. Pitso’s niece Sefora said at first the family was shocked at the news, but he always spoke about how he would love his funeral to be.

The village of Jozanashoek in Sterkspruit, Eastern Cape, where Pitso was a chief and also a member of the United Democratic Movement (UDM), came to a standstill on Saturday as their chief was buried in his 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 in his car was towed to his grave in the family graveyard. Pitso was dressed in a cream white suit and seated behind the steering wheel both his hands placed on it. The burial took place last Saturday.
