Lusaka - A Malawian man has been left without a penis and is missing three toes after they were eaten by a hyena in a Zambian border town, a local hospital said on Wednesday.

Chamangeni Zulu, in his early twenties, was discharged from the Chipata General Hospital this week, a senior nurse told AFP.

"He was discharged on Monday after the relatives requested that he should be transferred to Muchinji in Malawi," said Sister Precious Matongo, referring to a town just across the border.

"They should be constantly cleaning the wounds but he is stable," she added.

Local media reported that Zulu sacrificed his body parts after being told by a traditional healer that it would help him become rich.

"I went to a bush where I was instructed to be naked and a hyena came to me and started eating my toes and eventually my manhood was eaten," he is quoted as saying by the Times of Zambia.

Many Malawians cross the border between the two southern African countries to work on Zambia's commercial tobacco farms.
