The horrors that occur in our community, in accordance with Christian beliefs, are evidence that the world is going to an end.
An Esigodini District, Matabeleland South, 20-year-old guy from Godlwayo Village 3 was found guilty of raping and killing a goat.
Over the past few years, reports of similar instances of animal sexual assault have come out of South Africa.
The thing that irritates me the most about these kinds of incidents is how the same people keep committing the same crimes even after they’ve been caught and punished.
Mthandazo Ndlovu appeared in front of Esigodini resident magistrate Nomagugu Sibanda, who charged him with two counts of bestiality by Section 74 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9:23 of the Zimbabwean constitution. He pleaded guilty to both counts and was sentenced to 18 months in prison, with six months suspended for three years under the condition that he not be convicted of any bestiality-related offence during that time.
The remaining twelve months of Ndlovu’s sentence were suspended on the condition that he perform 420 hours of community service at Goddwayo Primary School. Ndlovu was caught in the act of raping two goats in the village of Ntabende, Esigodini, Zimbabwe.
