South African Eats Man's Heart to Prove He's Straight
A businessman from Zimbabwe is on trial in South Africa Wednesday after admitting he ripped out a man's heart and ate it "to show he was not gay," while the victim was alive, the Daily Mail reports.
Andrew Chimboza, 35, told police in Cape Town, South Africa, that he killed Mbuyiselo Manona, 62, in self-defense on June 10 at the home of a client in the township of Gugulethu, after Chimboza was insulted.
Prosecutor Quawnita Geyer read Chimboza's statement in court where the defendant said,"'I sat upon him and stabbed him on the chest, tore out his heart and took a knife and then sliced his heart and then I ate his heart."
"The reason for me to eat the unknown guy's heart was to show him that I am not a moffie [gay] and after I finished eating the heart, I realized he was dead," Geyer read to the court.
Investigating officer Constable Mphumelelo Yengwa was present for the autopsy and reported his finding.
"It was conducted by Dr. Allie. Dr. Allie told me that the heart is not present in the deceased's body and therefore, when the heart was taken out, he could see that the deceased was still alive," he said, according to the Citizen.
