NORTON- A 22-year old Norton man has been arrested and remanded in police custody following allegations he had sex with a goat. Mafios Chisare’s romp with the goat was only cut short when the animal bleated out “sounds of distress” prompting its owner to rush to its rescue.
The owner of the goat Mr David Mutunha said he caught Chisare in the act with his goat after he heard sounds of distress coming from the animal. Residents in Ward 28 in Norton were left stunned by the bizarre incident which happened on Saturday night.
Police Spokesperson, Superintendent Andrew Phiri confirmed the arrest of Chisare and said the suspect is expected to appear in court this Monday.
Last month a 34 year old Chirumhanzu man appealed to police for help after being ordered to pay lobola and marry a goat he was allegedly caught having sex with. The animal’s owners assaulted him before dumping the animal at his homestead and demanding lobola.
The man identified as Dziva admitted being found in the Sithole family’s goats’ pen but dismissed allegations he had been intimate with the animal.
“It’s only a suspicion, I was not caught red-handed but they (Sithole family) claim that their goat is pregnant and they are demanding that I pay for that. If they found me in there, does that mean I was being intimate with their goat?” A local headman said the matter had since been referred to the chief.
In August last year, a 16-year old boy caused a stir in Buhera for satisfying his sexual desires with chickens, calves and goats. At least three chickens and one calf died within a month after the sexual encounters.
The teenager, Egious Chikoore confessed that he only gets sexual gratification from animals. “I have been intimate with the chickens and goats nearly every day. Sometime I target the calves in the kraal when everyone retires to bed,” he said.
Egious, a school drop out was employed by Mbuya Ester Chitendere as a herdboy. Chitendere, narrated how the bizarre incident began.
“I employed Egious in April and his duties were merely to herd my stock since I am aging. The problem began when several of my chickens mysteriously went missing after attending my brother’s memorial service.”
“We hunted for the chickens but failed to locate them only to find one behind the main bedroom. We were not suspicious although its backside was wide open. A few days after the incident, I discovered that several chickens were ill but we failed to identify the sickness.”
“We opted to slaughter and feasted on the meat,” she said. Mbuya Chitendere says within a week, she mysteriously lost one of her healthy calves after seeing it showing the similar symptoms.
“The calf died within a week.” “It was not easy to inform my daughter Simbisai, who resides in Britain as she would be heartbroken. “It had stopped feeding and its eyes had changed into a whitish colour.”
“We threw it away but I was really troubled for losing my stock in such a mysterious manner.” However, the beans spilled when Mbuya Chitendere noticed one of her chickens battling to walk.
Mbuya Chitendere smelt and detected fresh human semen all over the chicken’s nether hole. “I placed the chicken in a basket and asked Egious about it but he declined.
“Yaichururuka hurume.” (human semen was oozing from it) “I rushed to Egious’s aunt who stays in the neighbourhood and she could not believe her eyes.” Egious eventually admitted he had a lust for fresh chickens, cattle and goats, but not on a braai stand.
