Zambia: Chisamba Man Guilty of Sex With Chicken

A CHISAMBA magistrate has convicted a 27-year-old unemployed man for having carnal knowledge of a chicken which later died.

In his ruling, magistrate Davis Tiwilili said he found the accused guilty of the offence and committed him to the High Court for sentencing.

Goliath Nyirenda of Mubalani settlement in Chisamba had sex with a chicken around 23:00 hours on November 18, last year and was charged with an unnatural sex offence.

Mr Tiwilili said the offence was a serious one which carried a maximum sentence of 15 years and fell under the jurisdiction of the High Court.

Nyirenda was convicted of one count of unnatural offence contrary to Section 155b of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC), a charge he denied.

Nyirenda said during trial that on the fateful night around 22:00 hours, he returned from a drinking spree and was later woken up by the owner of the chicken Gift Michelo.

He said Mr Michelo locked him in his house and went to call his neighbours before he was handed over to the police for no reason.

But in his testimony, Mr Michelo testified that on the night of the event around 23:00 hours he was woken up by a chicken which was making noise.

He traced the noise to Nyirenda's house.

When he entered the house, he saw Nyirenda throw the chicken through the window in panic.

Mr Michelo picked the chicken and realised that it was his and when he checked it, he noticed that it was soiled behind by Nyirenda.

And the arresting officer only identified as Mr Chushi told the court that he made up his mind to arrest and charge the accused after investigations.
