‘Condom Sausage’ Lady Sues Legana Meats for Damages

Lusaka resident Luyando Kopakopa has sued Legana Meats Company demanding damages after she allegedly consumed their Hungarian sausage that appeared to have been packed in a condom.

This is according to a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court Registry on August 12, 2019.

Kopakopa, a medical student, has stated that the alleged used condom also contained some meat which appeared like human flesh.

The plaintiff claims that after consuming the said sausage, she developed convulsions, stress and fear and ultimately she vomited excessively.

Kopakopa wants damages for tortious liability arising from consumption of hungarian sausage allegedly produced by Legana Meat Products.

Meanwhile, Proprietor of Legana Meats Edith Nawakwi says she will sue the people spreading falsehoods on social media that Legana sausages contained human flesh.

Nawakwi, who is also opposition FDD leader, said she had reported Erick Ng’andu and Kopakopa to the police for spreading falsehoods that Legana sausages contained human flesh.

She lamented that the past few days had been the most agonising in her life after a video went viral that Legana sausages contained human flesh.

Nawakwi said her business is still afloat despite the negative publicity and has thanked her customers for remaining loyal.

She has since challenged Ng’andu and Kopakopa to report to the police.

And the Lusaka City Council, through the Department of Public Health, has  revealed that Legana Hungarian Sausage does not contain any foreign matter.

On August 7, 2019, the Department of Public Health received a complaint from Ng’andu that he had found a “condom” like foreign matter in the alleged Legana sausage.

LCC Public Relations Manager George Sichimba said the analysis was done and the results revealed that there was no evidence of foreign matter identified in the sausage.

    Am sure one of the workers at Legana did the bad packaging deliberately or one of Legana’s competitors is sabotaging their business. The ladies who found the condom are just a scapegoat.

    Invite the Doctors from Private Hospitals to test the samples of the “condom” foreign matter in Legana Hungarian Sausage because the LCC Health Department can be paid or corrupted in order to produce false examination of the Sausage in question. Maybe this Student is hating Edith Nawakwi or there is another Meat Company in Lusaka which is supporting this Student to take Legana Meat Company to Court so as to dent or paralyze the operations of this same Company in question???? Thanks

    We should be vigilant to ensure that the food we eat is safe. However, the bigest threat for African development is not powerful foreign companies but the mentallity of us Africans. If this product came from a foreign company all these suspicions and inuendos would not arise. But the PhD (pull him/her down) syndrome will linger with us for some time. Any suspicion of anything on our own local products goes wild largely because of the same syndrome.

    While Edith is doing well to run such an important food processing plant. I was surprised that workers in the processing plant don’t use gloves as shown on TV. Food handling is delicate especially in hygiene context. Its not in order for anyone to handle food and food products without appropriate protective wear.

    Dangerous acts against the innocent woman, this marks the biggining of storms in your projects, only open your eyes, people are deadly when they target individuals trying to pull them down with whatever means they think is able. Only look to God if you are interested, the enemy is at work.

    In my view, my little sister should rather have talked to Nawakwi herself to address the issue. To blow it to such proportions may suggest something else. We need to exercise tolerance and learn to give chance to someone to do better.
