A man in Zimbabwe has been charged to court after he was caught having sex with a cow.
According to Zimeye, the incident which is seen by residents as a taboo and a bad omen, could bring fatal results if some sacrifices are not carried out to appease the gods of the land.
Runesu was arraigned before Magistrate Sibongile Mkandla on charges of bestiality after he was caught making love to James Makwarimba’s cow in broad daylight.
It was gathered that Runesu was herding cattle on March 14, around 1pm, when he took a tree bark and tied the hind legs of Makwarimba’s cow and had sex with the beast.
He was busted by another villager in the act, who raised an alarm and he was apprehended before he could escape.
A villager from the area said:
"Runesu betrayed his neighbour’s trust by what he did. We were shocked when we heard about the incident because Makwarimba treated him like his own brother.
What Runesu did cannot be accepted. It is very sad and unfortunate. Everyone is stunned by the act. I think he is going to learn a lesson after being convicted.”
