Boy reportedly goes mad after sleeping in a graveyard for 10 days

A young man has reportedly gone mad after trying to prove to the area chief that if he could spend 10 cold nights sleeping in a graveyard, prison would be no problem.

The young man identified as James Chileshe or 'Jumbo boy', from Lusaka, Zambia, was said to have challenged his area chief saying that he was not afraid of prison, and he would spend 10 nights out in the open (in a graveyard) to prove his point.

James asked Chief Mukkuni to allow him stay in the graveyard uninterrupted to which the chief agreed.

According to reports, four days into the challenge, James who had been spending the nights lying on top of a grave suddenly became mad, stripping himself naked, dancing to imaginary music, singing at the top of his voice, laughing like he was possessed and running helter-skelter.

One of his uncles, Michael Chileshe said:

James managed to spend only four days at the graveyard out of the 10 he had promised chief, then started singing and dancing. He claimed that he could hear sweet melodies."

Chief Mukkuni is, however, yet to comment on the issue.
