English Summary

If someone was bitten by a neighbours dog, it was important that they report the matter to the dog’s owner. They will take a spoonful of cooked mielie meal and rub it on the wound then they will give the pap to the dog and force it to eat it. They believed that by doing this the victim will never have a same problem with the dog. And they also take saliva from the dog’s mouth and smear it on the wound for a speedy healing.

If a dog eats chicken eggs, the family had to boil one egg and take it while it hot and force it down the dogs throat. This was done so that the dog will stop stealing the eggs.

Bull fighting was also done to pass time but sometimes they fought for territory. If one of the bulls was severely injured that would lead to death. The cattle would be slaughtered and part of the meat will be taken to the family of the other bull. This should be left at the gate. This was done as the gesture of peace by both families.
