Men Fined US$150 For Sodomy

Two men, Ayanda Nkomo (26) and Will Jaricha (28) were recently arraigned before the Beitbridge Magistrates’ Court facing sodomy charges.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said on March 31, 2024, the accused individuals were drinking beer together at Konka Night Club in Beitbridge.

Around 23:40 hours, they left the nightclub and proceeded to a nearby toilet while hugging each other.
Suspicious of their behaviour, two of the nightclub’s security personnel followed them.

Upon opening the door of the toilet, the security personnel discovered that the accused persons were caressing each other around the waist and kissing each other on the mouth.

Additionally, the first accused person had his erect manhood exposed. The first accused person attempted to flee but was apprehended.

The matter was reported to the Police, leading to the arrest of both accused persons.

As a result of the court proceedings, the accused persons were convicted and sentenced to either pay a fine of US$150 each or face 120 days imprisonment if they fail to make the payment.

In Zimbabwe, sodomy is classified as unlawful sexual conduct. It is defined in the Criminal Law and Codification Reform Act as either anal sexual intercourse or any act involving physical contact that would be regarded by a reasonable person as an indecent act between two consenting adult men. Both men involved can be charged with sodomy.

However, boys under 14 and mentally incompetent persons cannot be charged with sodomy.
