A 26-year-old man Bulawayo man left his neighbors in shock after he slaughtered and braaied his dog in their full view and he also threatened with a similar fate.
According to sources a drunk Jacob Mwanza, popularly known as “Nyaguza”, had a tendency of not only patting his dog, but fond_ling it as well. He also told his neighbours that one day he would slaughter his dog commonly known as My Lady.
On the day in question Mwanza came home drunk on Wednesday last week and started shouting at his tenants in the family house demanding meat for a braai.
“He shouted and asked for meat for braai when he came home drunk. He then slaughtered My Lady in view of the public,” said MaNcube, one of the residents.
It is understood Mwanza slaughtered My Lady and had a braai until members of the public reprimanded him.
“He slaughtered his dog and had a braai. Residents tried to reprimand him for eating dog meat but Mwanza became radical and ordered the community to respect his rights,”said Brian, one of the residents.
Mwanza told B-Metro that he slaughtered his dog after being inspired by a television show, Ultimate Braai Master. He denied that he ate dog meat.
“I can’t remember what really happened because I was drunk. I love braai and was inspired by Braai Master show to slaughter my dog but it is a lie that I ate dog meat,” said Mwanza, looking a bit dazed.
“People want to tarnish my image and I know that members of the community have a grudge on me,” said Mwanza.
