She went on to note that people always find a way to milk you dry like demanding a repeat of events that have been held outside the state and requesting that food be served during all events. A list of the type of food to be served might also be given to the family of the deceased.
Village elders and church leadership will also demand financial gratification for certain parts of the ceremony. Mary Lazarus noted that there was no justification for this behavior and she has refused to understand why y prevails all in the name of culture.
