WHEN the uncle discovered that his puppy had died, he became angry!
He believed the seven-year-old nephew had killed the little animal deliberately.
HE ALLEGEDLY BEAT THE BOY – THEN FORCED HIM TO EAT THE DEAD PUPPY’S RAW MEAT LAST THURSDAY!
The gogo (37) of the boy from Mtubatuba, northern KZN, said she wanted the police to arrest the uncle for cruelty.
“I wasn’t home at the time because I’m busy with ukuthwasa at the home of my gobela.”
The boy is now in the safety and care of social workers.
The gogo said she came home after she got a call from a female family member, who called her and told her to come home because she was being dominated by the uncle.
The gogo said she confronted the uncle.
“With tears running down my face, I asked him why he did it,” she said.
“Instead of giving me answers, he is accusing me of putting spells on him and said that is why he made the boy eat the dead puppy.”
She said she wanted the uncle arrested because he has shown how cruel he is.
“He abused my grandchild in a terrible way,” she said.
The gogo said her daughter had died in 2018 and left her with her two children.
“The boy is an orphan as I’ve never seen his dad,” she explained.
