Zambian citizens were left confused after a girl of Masala township in Ndola, Zambia, who was believed to have died two years ago walked back to her parents’ home on Sunday. According to her parents, the ‘resurrected’ girl, identified as Winnie Lufunja, died after an illness and was buried at age 17. They added that the body of their late daughter even went through a church service and body viewing before it was buried.
Zambia Daily Mail reports that Winnie was buried three days after her demise on November 12, 2016 in grave number 73, according to the Ndola City Council books.Her bones are still there, according to the findings of an exhumation done on Monday, along with the blue blanket, bottle and other items that her mother identified that her body was buried with. The parents have also submitted her birth and death certificates to the police to help establish the truth. The parents and the ‘resurrected’ Winnie are at the Police station, awaiting a DNA test to confirm if she truly returned from the dead.
