A MAN caught having sex with a donkey stunned a court on Monday by claiming that the animal was in fact a hooker he pulled from a nightclub.
Sunday Moyo, 28, from Mandava township in Zvishavane, was charged with bestiality on Monday.
Zvishavane magistrate Mildred Matuvi heard how Moyo was found by police officers on routine patrol performing a sex act on the animal inside his yard just after 4AM last Sunday.
The donkey, which had been tied by the neck to a tree, was lying on the ground.
Although he was not formally asked to enter a plea, Moyo admitted committing the crime but told the magistrate an enthralling tale which had the court in stitches.
“Your worship, I only came to know that I was being intimate with a donkey when I got arrested,” he began.
“I had hired a prostitute and paid US$20 for the service at Down Town night club and I don’t know how she then became a donkey.”
The magistrate remanded Moyo in custody to October 27 and also ordered that he be examined by two government psychiatrists.
