Three young men in their 20s have been arrested red handed with dog meat which they were attempting to sell to unsuspecting clients.
The suspects have only been identified as Ihimbazwe (aged 20), Yangeneye (aged 22) and Nshimiyimana (27). They are residents of Gikumba village, Gikoma cell in Ruhango district.
Jean Bosco Nizeyimana the executive secretary at Ruhango sector was quoted saying that he was aware of the incidence but didn’t have more details.
According to a local newsblog Umuseke, the suspects had bought the dog from Alexis Gasatsi on Sunday but the dog bit Dusingizimana a resident who was later rushed to Kinazi hospital.
On realising that the situation had turned complicated, the owners of this dog decided to slaughter it and sold the meat claiming it was goat meat but residents burst their ploy.
