Uganda Family Shunned for Monkey Eating

Residents of Adok village, Dokolo district have decided to isolate a family of 10 over accusations that they eat monkeys.

John Ojuka and his family have for long been hunting monkeys in the area, saying they sell the meat to Sudanese in Lira town. Ojuka would also give residents sh2,000, for each monkey killed.

However, some curious residents kept monitoring the said business and discovered that Ojuka would not transport the meat to Lira but would consume it.

The LC1 chairman called a meeting and residents agreed never to go to Ojok's home.
