The world is mourning the death of Pope Benedict who died recently aged 95 years after a deteriorated health. A popular blogger has now come out to reveal to Kenyans that when a Pope dies his head is hit three times with a hammer.
Polycarp Hinga who is a popular Azimio blogger on Tuesday took Kenyans by surprise after he revealed the truth about the Pope's death. He said that he is hit using a hammer on the head three times while calling out the name he was given after baptism. This is done to make sure that the pope is really dead. If he does not give any response then he is pronounced dead.
"When a Pope dies, they verify that he is gone for real for real by hitting his head three times with a hammer while calling his baptismal name. When he (or she in the case of Pope Joan) does not respond , he is declared dead," Hinga said in a post on twitter.
