Videos trended online showing a truck from Ezemvelo in KwaZulu-Natal loaded with two giraffes and six impalas. The truck arrived at Prince Buthelezi’s home in KwaPhindangene in Ulundi, north of KZN, on Thursday, 14 September evening.

A truck with a crane hurled and loaded the two gigantic giraffes before setting off for Ulundi. Another vehicle moved the six springboks for Prince Buthelezi’s funeral. The animals were later slaughtered on arrival, and mourners would feast on them at the funeral.

He said:

“Some people yesterday said traditional soldiers went to hunt for the giraffes. Let me put it clearly. It’s a donation from Ezemvelo. You remember Khoisans lived with, hunted and ate giraffes. So people don’t know that giraffe is just meat, just like cattle. So, it is not a culture. It’s a donation from Ezemvelo Wildlife [Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife].”



Mixed Reactions To The Slaughter Of Wild Animals

South Africans were taken aback by the giraffes and springboks at Prince Buthelezi’s funeral.


“They filed a case against Malema for slaughtering a cow with a bread knife. I wanna see what’s gonna happen with this one.”


“It would be the 1st time in my life I learned that a Giraffe is edible!”


“I smell a court case pending just for the giraffe 🦒 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣”


“I’ve never heard of giraffes being edible, but I’m not surprised. Ever since I learnt about crocodile meat, I’m not shocked about what people eat.”
