Wife GATECRASHES Her OWN Funeral, Confronts Husband Who Hired Her Killer, His Response…

Typically, when someone pays to have another person killed, they expect them to actually end up dead. But for one wicked man, there was instead a big surprise as his very much alive wife showed up to her own funeral to confront him.

Noela Rukundo has started a new life with her eight children after some members of the local community blamed her for the jailing of her husband Balenga Kalala.

Mr Kalala is serving nine years in prison for incitement of murder after paying $7,000 to a gang of hitmen to murder his wife while she was attending her mother’s funeral in Burundi.

Now one year on, Noela Rukundo recalled the moment she was abducted and learnt of her husband’s betrayal before secretly returning to Melbourne to seek justice.

‘Kill her.’ The chilling words Noela never thought she would hear her husband say down the phone.

… Recalling the moment of her kidnapping, Noela described how she opened the hotel’s gate and was confronted by a man with a gun.

‘He just told me, ‘Don’t scream. If you start screaming, I will shoot you. They’re going to catch me, but you? You will already be dead,’ she told the BBC.

She was driven to a building, where her captives phoned ‘the boss’ and curiously asked her what she had done to him.

Confused by the question, Noela asked them who they were talking about before they revealed it was her husband of 10 years who was paying them.

She couldn’t believe what they were saying and initially she thought they were tricking her. It was only when they called ‘the boss’ that she heard her husband’s familiar voice.

‘I heard his voice. I heard him. I felt like my head was going to blow up. Then they described for him where they were going to chuck the body,’ she said.

Yet unbeknownst to Mr Kalala, his vile plan failed. After extorting more money out of him for the job, Noela’s captors told her they did not kill women and were going to release her.

She described how the gang told her: ‘You must learn something: you people get a chance to go overseas for a better life. But the money you are earning, the money the government gives to you, you use it for killing each other!’

They gave her a memory card with the incriminating phone conversations with her husband as well as the bank transfer receipts in order to allow her to exact revenge.

Two days after her release, Noela secretly returned to Melbourne on 22 February, only confiding with a pastor about what had happened.

Mr Latalala had already informed the local community about her supposed death, telling people that she had died in an accident in Burundi.

Seeing the mourners and well-wishers entering her home, Noela waited until her husband was alone before approaching him.

The father-of-three was stunned to see she was not dead as she told him: ‘Surprise, I’m still alive. You are a wicked man. Why did you want me to be killed? What about your small children? Who was going to look after them?’

At first, Mr Kalala refused to admit he had taken out a hit on his wife, but Victoria’s Supreme Court was told he admitted he had paid for her to be killed and pleaded with Ms Rukundo to forgive him in a phone call on February 28, which was secretly taped by police.

The husband said he had wanted to get back at his wife for her alleged infidelity.

‘He say he wanted to kill me because he was jealous. ‘He think that I wanted to leave him for another man,’ Ms Rukundo said.

‘Sometimes Devil can come into someone, to do something, but after they do it they start thinking, ‘Why I did that thing?’, later,’ the Congolese forklift operator said as an explanation for his actions.

Kalala pleaded guilty to one charge of incitement to murder and and was sentenced to nine years in prison on 11 December 2015.

After her ordeal, Noela moved away from her old home after some members of the local African community criticised her for her husband’s conviction.

‘My situation, my past life? That is gone. I will stand up like a strong woman,’ she said defiantly.

It’s really horrible that the members of her community would spurn her when she is the victim of this situation. Hopefully in her new life, she’ll find support and healing.
