What amused us at Gistvic, was the bearers of the corpse at the event, which were all women. Men are known to be Pallbearers. It seems the saying “What A Man Can Do, A Woman Can Do Better”, is almost right after all.

Example of male pallbearers are the Ghana dancing pallbearers who have become a popular tradition in West Africa especially in Ghana where funeral dancers are paid high fees for providing the dead with a lovely parting.
