“I also eat the meat because there is nothing wrong with it and times are tough. I have to survive and my chickens also need feed so I give them offals from the dogs,” said Ndebele. He rears chickens at his illegal shelter.A source who works at the NRZ steam shed, where Ndebele resides, said officials from the SPCA and Bulawayo City Council (BCC) confiscated the meat and dead dogs found in his possession.
“He makes brisk business as people scramble to buy cheap meat. We are not sure if they eat it or get it for resale. This man is a former teacher. We don’t know how he lost his job,” said a source who declined to be named.SPCA animal inspector Mr Dumisani Sibanda confirmed the incident and said he suspected Ndebele was mentally disturbed. “If it was a normal person doing this, I would have been in a position to say much,” said Mr Sibanda.
“All I can say is that there is a place where city council dug pits to dispose of dead dogs and it is suspected that he digs out them up.”A comment could not be obtained from Bulawayo police spokesperson Inspector Precious Simango. A medical doctor, who asked not to be named for professional reasons, said there was nothing wrong with eating dog meat.
“It’s actually better than beef because it is low in cholesterol. It does not cause any known sickness. People in this part of the world may not like it because they were socialised to believe it is not edible,” said the doctor.Dishes made from dog meat are delicacies in some countries. – state media
