Man kills crocodile, father sprinkles juju in court

An 18-year-old man Mbire district allegedly hunted a crocodile in Utete river, Mashonaland Central province.

It emerged at Guruve magistrate court that Oliva Kwainonona of Kwainonona village reportedly killed a crocodile contravening section 59 (b) (2) of Parks and Wildlife act chapter 20:14 of 1996, which is unlawful hunt or removal of any animal in any land.

The prosecutor Ms Jane Mwanandimai told the court that on 14 April kwainona killed a crocodile using an axe with the intention of seeing what was in its stomach prompting a Parks and Wildlife officer to visit the scene before his arrest.

The case was withdrawn before plea as it lacked sufficient evidence by the state who failed to bring all witnesses.

The matter is to be re-addressed by the investigating officer and be brought back to court when all the facts are in order.

Meanwhile, the suspect was accompanied to court by his father who is a village head in Kwainona village.

The village head was seen by people who attended the court sprinkling some staff presumed to be juju.
