Eastern Province Police Commissioner Alex Chilufya said that the suspect was on friday detained together with her husband Charles Mwanza,33 who supplied her the meat.

Mr Chilufya said the Veterinary Department analysed and confirmed that it was dog meat which is unfit for human consumption.
He said the couple were in Police custody waiting to appear in court today charged with Offence of Nuissance C/S.171 CAP 87.



  1. Even the so called chicken ‘chawama’ or is it Shawarma whose ingredients are small chopped pieces of meat could actually have elements of dog meat.

    From today I have ceased eating pies, Shawarmas, sausages etc whose ingredients I can not determine with certainty!

    I would rather buy T-Bone, Chicken hamstring, wings and fish which stuff I’m sure of.
