Oom Paul gets reprieve

Bloemfontein – The family of Paul Meintjies of Hertzogville, whose resurrection was predicted by a “prophet” after his death some five weeks ago, will inform the town’s mortician on Friday what to do with the body.

“The family contacted me and made an appointment for Friday morning,” free State mortician Nico Foulds said on Thursday.

Foulds said earlier he had given the family until the end of Thursday to remove the remains and pay the bill of R9000.

Meintjies’ body has been kept frozen in the town’s mortuary since July 1 after a family prophet predicted that he would rise from the dead.

The family has been waiting ever since.
