Businessman who ripped out a man’s heart and ATE it ‘to prove he was not gay’ apologises to victim’s family

and admits he ‘exceeded the boundaries of self-defence’

A businessman who ripped a man’s heart out and ate it to ‘prove he was not gay’ has apologised to his victim’s family for ‘exceeding the boundaries of self-defence’.

Andrew Chimboza, 35, who runs a window tinting business, pleaded guilty to murdering Mbuyiselo Manona, 62, in the South African township of Gugulethu last year.

He told police after he was arrested that he gouged out Mr Manona’s heart and ate it as he lay bleeding to death ‘to show him that I am not a moffie [gay]’.
