Wednesday, 16 March 2022 – A 35-year-old man from Kitale left the residents in shock after he ate a raw snake in public.
The daring man, identified as John Wafula, attracted a huge crowd after he caught a huge snake and ate it as the crowd watched.
According to Wafula, who is nicknamed Mla Nyoka, he prefers to eat snake meat because it is a cheap delicacy as compared to ordinary meat from the butcheries.
He earns a living by collecting firewood from bushy and forested areas in the outskirts of Kitale town which he sells to women within the nearby slums and it is during such missions that he captures snakes for food.
Wafula has mastered the skills of trapping the snakes.
He explained to the curious crowd how he captures the snakes.
“Since snakes are dangerous and can pounce on you if you don’t take enough precautions, I wait until it has swallowed a rat or a rabbit when it’s relaxing in the shade and I normally use two sharp sticks,” he said.
Wafula disclosed that the best time to trap the snakes is when they are full and relaxing in the shade.
He further said that snakes are quick to fight back at the smallest provocation when they are hungry and when the sun is hot.
He has been eating snakes for the last 10 years.
