"I have never had sex with any woman in my life. That goat and a few more other goats have been my wives," he said.
He blamedevil spirits for his sex with goats and begged the court to give him time to buy another goat for the complainant. The magistrate remanded in custody pending his ruling.
Robert of Mavhurume village under Chief Mangwende was caught red handed by Alice Makamba having sex with her goat. Robert left home and went to gather his family's goats as usual. After spotting his goats, Robert saw one goat belonging to his neighbour..
The female goat reportedly started bleating as Robert chased it. The owner, Alice, who was in her maize field was alerted by the bleating.
Alice reportedly kept monitoring Robert's intentions on her goat from a distance. Robert caught the goat after it got tired. The court heard that he then dragged the neighbour's goat to a nearby bushy spot where he started having sex with the domestic animal while it continued bleating.
Alice reportedly then ran to where Robert was and caught him red-handed, with his pants lowered, quenching his sexual zest on the goat.
Prosecutor Chitiki told the court that upon being quizzed by the owner of the goat, Robert then 'got off' the goat and begged for an apology. Alice went and reported the matter to Musam Police Post, leading to Robert's arrest.
