On the 24th of June 2017 at about 1445hrs a man bought a regular pizza meat deluxe at Bulawayo Chicken Slice Bulawayo outlet along 9th Avenue CNR Fort Street. When he was now eating the pizza he discovered a big housefly inside a clear sign that the food was contaminated and immediately went back to show the cashier. The cashier invited two other male staff who witnessed the discovery. A female manager also came and notified him that she can’t assist him but gave him the mobile number of marketing personnel who said to be in Harare.
