Jail for couple who romped in front of child

A ZIMBABWEAN woman has been hospitalised after taking a cocktail of prescription pills in a bid to kill herself after watching a sickening video of a mum having sex in front of her three-year-old son.

Sukoluhle Moyo-Mackenzie – who was abused as a child – was hospitalised in Manchester, England, earlier this week after taking a near-lethal combination of drugs.

Speaking from her hospital bed, she said: “I was abused as a child and no-one cared. Seeing that kid in that video brought back horrific memories. Something needs to be done and it has to be now.

“Politicians and authorities should not ignore this boy, he is a victim. I want him to be rescued out of this. This is the most terrible thing to happen to a child.”

She told the ZimDiaspora.com website she planned to launch a campaign to find the child a better home – although this would be a challenge as they live in Zimbabwe where child protection laws are rarely enforced.

The mobile phone sex video went viral last week after it leaked. It shows the boy’s mother, who can today be named as Chipo Mpofu of Mzilikazi, Bulawayo, romping with a mystery man before the lad walks into the room.

Looking distressed, the boy calls out ‘Mama, Mama’ but is ignored as her mother continues the sex act.

Police in Bulawayo are in the early stages of their own enquiries after a report in the local B-Metro newspaper on Friday. Police sources say Mpofu and her partner, who is not thought to be the boy’s father, could be charged under pornography laws.
