Mixed reactions as Larry Madowo feasts on Mice in Malawi (Video)
"Like a rat on the highway"
Madowo who works for BBC Africa, shared a video while eating a roasted mouse by the road side following an encounter with Malawian’s who sell them.
“I ate a mouse, for the first time and it was, well, amazing! Mice (not rats!) are a delicacy among the Chewa of central Malawi. I will eat anything and I had to try these. They’re eaten whole with the skin and everything. Tastes just like chicken #wanderlust #goeverywhere#eateverything” wrote Larry Madowo.
However, the video has attracted different sentiments among his followers basing on the fact that, Mice are not openly eaten by a large number of Kenyans.
“Madowo unakula panya waaaaaat bro hope u dont start eating unga and clothes@larrymadowo”
