Man performs sex act on dog

HARARE - An Epworth man who forced himself on one of his dogs has appeared in court facing bestiality charges.

Neville Mpofu,49, denied the allegations when he appeared before Harare magistrate Vongai Muchuchuti.

He told the court that the neighbourhood and Zimbabwe Republic Police officers who apprehended him that night falsely laid the allegations against him.

Mpofu argued that he could not have forced himself on a dog because his wife was in a house 15 metres away from the alleged crime scene.

“I would never force myself on a dog because I have a wife,” he said.

“I delayed getting into the house because I knew my wife’s child was there and I don’t relate well with him. I stood at a distance waiting for him to leave and that is when police officers confronted me.

“If it is true that I committed this offence, why did the dog not bite me? Besides, it is just a puppy and it is not possible to penetrate it.”

The State led three witnesses, Cephas Dzamara a constable at Epworth police, Mike Purazi and Crispen Dokote a member of the neighbourhood watch committee.

All witnesses testified that when they arrived at the scene, Mpofu was still bonking the dog.

“We were on patrol with my colleagues that night and saw accused person ducking by a blair toilet around 10pm,” Dzamara said. “We caught him in the act when we arrived at the scene.

“He released the dog and told us that he was only urinating. A lot of people gathered at the scene and I had to close accused person’s zipper because women were teasing him.”

Mpofu was subsequently taken to Epworth Police Station.

The State alleged that on March 16 this year, around 10pm Dzamara was patrolling Epworth Overspill area with Purazi, Dokote and Tindike.

They saw Mpofu standing near a blair toilet and became suspicious. Dzamara staked out the place behind a tree and monitored Mpofu’s movements.

Dzamara saw Mpofu calling the dog. He allegedly took it behind the toilet.

They held Mpofu by his belt and he panicked before the dog ran away.

Magistrate Muchuchuti will deliver judgment today.

Iwewe unozviti mukarangawekuMberrengwa sei uchituka mapurisa. Saka ukuti hazvina basa kt vanhu varare nezvipfuyo? The police do not make the laws, they just enforce. i was in court myself the accused admitted that there was no bad blood btwn him and the officers and they knew each other only in connection with the crime.

Maybe I missed something but this is a story of word against word, no tangible evidence. He might have done it but the law states that the accused is innocent until proven guilty. It seems this man has a wife who has a grown up child to be feared. It makes sense that he was hiding not to be seen at around 10pm (well no one wants to be seen looking for a bedroom meal around that time). And it is not abnormal to walk with a puppy in your hands, you never know when you might lose it and it doesnt know home, let alone sell you out iwe wakahwandira chembere yako. If I were judge, I would acquit on grounds of insufficient evidence by the state.

I wonder if they did tests on the man or dog to prove beyond reasonable doubt, this smacks of shody police work. By their own account, it was dark, the accused was blocked from clear view by the tree and toilet. While he as well had the intention, the state has nothing to stand on to prove its allegations. Maybe the accused is being set up, it happens a lot with our justice system these days.
