A man who took out a hit on his wife got the surprise of his life when she walked through the doors of her own funeral.

Noela Rukundo sat in a car outside of her home as the last few attendees filed out. After spotting her husband, she stepped out of her car to confront him.

“Surprise! I’m still alive!” she said.

Five days earlier, Balenda Kalala had ordered a team of hit men to kill Rukundo, his wife of 10 years. The woman, a native of Burundi, had returned to her homeland from Australia to bury her step mother.

“I had lost the last person who I call ‘mother,'” Rukundo recounted. “It was very painful. I was so stressed.”

After returning to her hotel, Kalala, called to check on her. He suggested that she take a walk to clear her mind. That was when she was kidnapped.

They told him his wife had been killed, but the hit men spared Rukundo’s life.

“I felt like somebody who had risen again,” Rukundo said.
