CHISAMBA, ZAMBIA – A Zambian man, Mr Goliath Nyirenda was caught sexually pleasuring himself on a chicken in Zambia’s Chisamba area, a court was told.
Mr Goliath Nyirenda, 27, was on Thursday convicted of having indulged himself in “carnal knowledge” of a chicken.
The man of Mubalani settlement in Chisamba is reported to have had sex with the chicken at approximately 2300hrs on November 18, 2012.
He was unemployed at the time, the court heard.
Mr Nyirenda however denied the allegation stating that on the night in question, he returned home after a night of heavily imbibing drink. He went to bed and was awoken by chicken owner, Gift Michelo. Nyirenda further alleged he was shocked when Michelo locked him in his own house then called his neighbours and the police for no reason.
However, when he took to the witness stand the chicken owner, Mr Michelo, testified that on the night at about 2300hrs he was awoken by a chicken squawking unnaturally. He then followed the noise to Mr Nyirenda’s house. When Mr Michelo entered the house Nyirenda then threw the chicken out the window in blind panic.
The arresting officer, Mr Chishi told the court that he made the decision to arrest Mr Nyirenda after he investigated the matter. Mr Chishi noticed that the chicken was soiled in its rear end. This testimony was also corroborated by Mr Michelo. The chicken subsequently died possibly due to trauma to the rear passage.
Mr Nyirenda now awaits sentencing by the High Court.
The maximum penalty for the crime of bestiality in Zambia is 15years.
