Zimbabwe: Man in Trouble for Killing Impala

19 November 2012

A BEATRICE man was last week ordered to perform 245 hours of community service for hunting and killing an impala without a permit. Simbarashe Chikowe (23) of Rusimbiro Farm in Beatrice admitted to contravening section 59 (2) of the Parks and Wildlife Act. The act stipulates that it is unlawful for one to hunt animals on any land without a licence. Chikowe appeared before Chitungwiza magistrate Mr Kudakwashe Jarabini where it was proved that he killed the impala and sold the meat to locals.

Mr Jarabini slapped him with a 10-month jail term, but conditionally set aside three months for five years. The remaining seven months were suspended on condition that he performed 245 hours of unpaid work at Stewsbury Primary School in Beatrice.

Prosecutor Mr Edmond Ndamabakuwa proved that Chikowe killed the animal on June 29 while on a hunting expedition.
