This Woman Came Back From the Dead to Spite the Husband Who Paid to Have Her Murdered

Noela Rukundo lived happily in Australia with her husband Balenga Kalala until she left to visit the country of Burundi where she grew up for her stepmother’s funeral.

In Burundi, she stepped out for some air after finishing a phone call with her loving husband to meet a man with a gun pointed at her.  Under the threat of death, she did what he told her to do and was taken to a secluded place where her kidnappers met with other gang members. Fortunately for her, the hitmen her husband sent to kill her were principled.

They told her they don’t kill women and children so after some theatrics over the phone, during which she heard her own husband command them to “Kill her” and the hitmen demanded more money and told him that she was dead.

With evidence from her would-be killers she headed home to crash her own funeral. She showed up right as mourning friends and family were leaving her husband’s home.

What kind of thing would you say to the person you love who tried to have you murdered?  Rukundo just said, “Surprise! I’m still alive!”

So the decision was...

to run today. It was cold, kinda windy and drizzly and I really wanted to just stay in the house but I went our for a run anyways. This cold coming on did not make it and easy one but I was out there moving for a while.

Then when I got home DD wanted to go for a bike ride so off we went. I was cold and started to rain on the way back but it was fun. I’m so glad I had one child who truly enjoys riding bikes.

Wore my new Balenga Hidden Comfort socks that I bought from RRS. All the reviews were really good and people said how cool they were. My feet seemed awful hot in them. ?
