In South Africa Dumisane Ngobene, a 21 year-old public relations’ student, has started to put his studies into practice.

His marketing campaign, advertised on a social media site, offers a variety of services: “Normal crying at R200 per mourner, crying and rolling on the ground at R300 per mourner, crying and insulting at R400 a mourner, or crying and threatening to jump into the grave at R500 per mourner.”
