    How can dog meat be unfit for human consumption when people like the Chinese consume it. Chinese are not humans?

      We don’t breed popiz in this country for meat consumption and it is unregulated, that’s they are saying unfit for human consumption, business wise this country could earn alot of dollars supplying them popiz to china, i think the odd couple husband 33,wife 39, are just going through dununa revelations, they have to make ends meet.

      Am sure a lot of us who travel between ndola and Kapiri have “eaten ” a poppy or two. Meat sold along this road will be labeled as bush pig or some other wild animal but it turned out one day that we had actually bought a domestic pig and not a wharthog. Someone advised to completely stop buying from there because one person had been sold dog meat.

    You mean there is a machine that can detect dog meat? And whats the meaning of dog meat not fit for human consumption? Is it that dogs are not edible or that this particular dog meat was diseased?

      @Peter, just by tasting. If no salt, then ni mbwa.
      I saw public health officials tasting meat in Chisamba, as inspection. She had to taste twice duck, before she concluded it was likanga, and fined poor woman poaching fee.

      If you can taste as a means of identification, then you might as well eat the entire carcass. You cannot taste poison to prove what it is.

      Yes the ****** are reaping what they sowed, why not give this couple a contract to supply meat at State House? You never know, may that is why both Lungu and Rupiah like the Chinese, to them Dog T-bone if any is delicious.

    Dog meat is actually claimed to be a good source of protein.
    From just here online research says:
    “Put simply, experts have told Newsbeat that in the West there is some sort of “emotional, psychological barrier” which stops us from eating dog meat”
    This means that the Zambian “Offence of Nuisance C/S.171 CAP 87” comes out of disgust that makes some “individuals” feel like they are eating their “best friends” or fellow man…
    I absolutely feel I would enjoy dog stew with Nshima unknowingly!!!

      Actually if you like Hungarian sausage especially in Lusaka there is a chance you have tasted dog meat. Someone somewhere within Lusaka is cashing in on the Hungarian sausages.

    To say dog meat is unfit for human consumption is showing ignorance of the worst kind. Dog meat is eaten by so many people in the world including our neighbors in DRC and also I am in Nigeria. Just say people were lied to saying they are eating goat meat but in actual fact its dog meat. such things happen even in other parts of the world including Europe!!!! Remember to horse meat scandal, which was labeled beef? So politicians don’t bring in politics this just human nature and some one must have just felt jelousy and reported the couple after seeing they were making more money than them!!!

    MAYBE THE OFFENCE SHOULD BE “OBTAINING MONEY BY FALSE PRETENCE” IF THIS COUPLE WERE CLAIMING THAT IT WAS BEEF THEY WERE SELLING. AND THERE MUST BE A COMPLAINANT. DOES THE CONSTITUTION TELL US WHICH MEAT IS EDIBLE AND WHICH ONE IS NOT EDIBLE? AS OTHERS HAVE POINTED OUT, DOG MEAT IS EDIBLE ELSEWHERE. IN FACT I HAD THE PLEASURE OF EATING A DOG PIE AND BURGER WHEN I VISITED BEIJING A YEAR AGO. BUT IN CHINA THE TRADERS WILL TELL YOU THAT THIS IS DOG MEAT AND THAT IS BEEF ETC.

    The couple have not commited any offence, that is dog meat period.

    Here the problem is not the (unfit for human consumption issue), the problem here is deceiving buyers. If the sellers were open about selling dog meat then the right customers such as the Kasai, Chinese etc would openly buy. They must be punished for disguising the meat and selling to the unsuspecting public.

    This has nothing to do with hunger because even in opulent times people have been cheating such as selling dried hyena as duiker meat. You just tie duiker hooves to the hyena and people will believe you. It’s an age old trick. The could have been in this “business ” for a long time but got unlucky this time around.

    You have been dununard kkkkk imbwa shalapwa in eastern province. Next time vote wisely lest you finish all the dogs in eastern. You are now eating dogs while you bululu is hammering JEMASON.

    Most of these Zambian dogs have rabies. Dogs meant for consumption in china & DRC are special breeds and fit for human consumption.

    They could have started this business a long time ago.

    What is wrong with dog meat? Its just bad cultural attitude on our party Zambians, dogs are domestic animals like goats, pigs, cats, cattle and they can be eaten like the case in other countries. Look a village domesticated pig is very dirty compared to a dog but we have qualms when it comes to eating a pork. In fact govt should ligalise the breeding of dogs for meat and we can earn a lot of forex. The Mwanza’s will get away with the case public nuisance is a simple case and they will just pay a fine. I remember sometime back there was a song called “Imwe mwatemwa kulya nyama ya pa tarven muklya na imbwa pipo” Lets talk serious things that will move this country forward we have had a lot of politicking in 2015 & 2016. Lets move on.

    There is a factory owned by Chinese processing mince meat and sausages from dog meat. These products are actually supplied to reputable supermarkets in the city. It’s just tricky and too difficult to know what exactly one is consuming nowadays. God protect us from unscrupulous producers.
