Three men in Kapiri Mposhi district in Zambia are alleged to have raped a chicken until it died in a case of suspected witchcraft. The three named men, aged 80, 66 and 35 years, are believed to have taken turns in having canal knowledge of a hen which later died yesterday.
Liombe Village headwoman, Loveness Chimbuleni, confirmed the incident to ZANIS today, saying the three have since been reported to police. Headwoman Chimbuleni said the three were discovered with the dead chicken in the room where they are alleged to have abused it. She said the dead chicken was discovered with its canal cavity widely ruptured with some suspected male semen oozing out of it.
"Three old men have raped a chicken here in my village. The chicken has since died. We have reported them to police for them to be arrested because they are a disgrace in the eyes of God and a shame to humanity," Headwoman Chimbuleni said.
The traditional leader also stated that cases of bestiality and being intimate against the order of nature were rampant in Chief Chipeppo's area. Headwoman Chimbuleni attributed the increase in the number of cases of bestiality and sex against the order of nature to widespread witchcraft.
"It is not the first time that such cases have occurred. We have several of them and it is just that we do not know why these cases are so high," headwoman Chimbuleni added. zambia watchdog
