Midlands Governor Jason Machaya has claimed that a goat in the Maboleni area of Lower Gweru in Chief Sogwala’s area gave birth to a ‘human like creature’ which later died within hours of birth.
The governor led a team of journalists and police officers to the scene of the occurence and he told the state owned Chronicle newspaper that ‘an adult human being was responsible’ for having sex with the goat after he ‘lost self control’.
“The head belongs to a man while the body is that of a goat,” Governor Machaya told the paper. This incident is very shocking. It is my first time to see such an evil thing,” the governor said.
“It is really embarrassing. It’s self-evident that an adult human being was responsible. Evil powers caused this person to lose self control.”
The creature is said to have had a human head, face, nose, shoulders and human-like skin that had very scanty furs. It had goat features from the ‘shoulders’ to the legs.
Its sagging stomach prevented curious villagers from determining whether it had human or animal sex organs as it protruded covering the front part.
