The rather stunning manner in which dead bodies are usually transported to the mortuary and from it in DR Congo communities, has been revealed.
Photos showing the trend were shared online by one PK Kasirim and have since gone viral.
Kasirim explained that "boda boda" riders i.e commercial motorcycle riders are employed to carry dead bodies to mortuary by tying the corpses behind them on the bikes. They then ride along the road to carry out the assignment.
The same happens when the corpses are to be brought back home for burial.
Kasirim's post has caused quite some buzz on social media as people alien to the trend express their surprise.
