Delicious nyama choma turns out to be dog meat

05 March 2015, 18:32 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - For over 5 years, 45-year-old Amulam Igembe has been selling what most people thought was roast goats meat (nyama choma) in the outskirts of Jinja town, only for his customers to learn that he has been feeding them on dog meat.

''He was very popular in all the local bars where he sold his nyama choma especially at night when most people are somehow tipsy. No one could guess that he was selling dog meat,'' said Brown Isabirye, a manager at one of the local bars.

Igembe's confession that he had been selling dog meat shocked many as no one could ever imagine he could do such a thing.

Police officers arrested him following a tip by one of his neighbors, Evans Kasozi who saw him slaughtering a dog behind his house.

"I accidentally caught him slaughtering a dog but he did not see me becaue I was a bit far. I hid in a bush and saw him cutting the dog's meat in small pieces and roasting it before taking it for sale," said Kasozi.

Kasozi reported to police and even took police offices to the spot where the dog was slaughtered.

By the time of his arrest, he had sold to over 10 people.

''I ate his meat several times while drunk. It was delicious but now am surprised to learn that I was eating dog's meat,'' said Silas Oguti, a regular reveler in the bars where Igembe used to sell his nyama choma.
