In the rural areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), corpses are being transported to or from the morgue on motorcycles.
The bikers must move to a distance of nearly 400 km, with a corpse on the back. Some poor families are forced to adopt this technique because they do not have money to rent a hearse.
The lifeless body is wrapped in a blanket, supported on both sides by tree branches attached to a motorcycle.
The photos that became viral on social networks, were shared by a PK Kasrim. The latter revealed that motorcyclists use this means of transport as a source of extra profit.
He said: “This is how “boda boda” riders in parts of rural DR Congo transport corpse to and from the mortuary. It’s a lucrative business to venture as it pays handsomely well. Tricky sana.”
These photos provoked the Internet users, several affirming that it is a lack of respect towards the dead.
