It’s been St. Martin’s Day all over the world and people went to get some nice goose meat to feast.
But where do you get your meat, especially red meat in the bush in the middle of nowhere? The nearest mall or meat market is 60km away from Chinkonono. You have to hike and hope to hitchhike on a maize truck, paying maybe $2 to reach town. After this challenging trip you buy a kilo of steak if you can afford it.
But seriously…would you if hares and impalas (they call them the fast food of the bush because of their speed and the McDonalds m on their butts 😉 ) were available in nearby bushes? No? Well, our PAF people and villagers don’t either.
So when a family craves for meat the boys mobilise themselves and whistle the dogs to combat. Theboys doing the hunting are from PAF families. The older one is Kankido. He usually leads the hunt and is very skilled and experienced and thus a good teacher for the younger men.
These troops spread into in the bush and within just a few hours they have fresh meat. It takes a bit of skills and patience. But it mostly pays off.
Just check out this short video about how they do it:
While, who needs a mall and fridge when fresh meat roams the neighbourhood?
