Man who had sex with pregnant goat has sentence extended to fifteen years
A man who admitted having sex with a pregnant goat has had his jail term extended to 15 years.
Reuben Mwamba had previously been imprisoned by a court in Zambia for five years, but prosecutors were outraged and took his case to a higher court.
Now the Kasama High Court has sentenced the 22-year-old to 15 years of hard labour.
The man had admitted carnal knowledge of a pregnant goat.
The court was told that on November 2, Mwamba, of Mutono Village had broken section 155 (b) of the penal code chapter 87 of the laws of Zambia..
But prosecutors demanded a more substantial sentence as a deterrent to others who might think about having sex with animals.
Ndola based Judge, Justice Emeria Sunkutu who is sitting in the Kasama High Court said she was shocked by the case.
She quashed the earlier sentence of five years imprisonment and replaced it with 15 years imprisonment with hard labour when the matter came for judicial review.
