Serial Rapist, Charles Magombedze Sentenced To 72 Years In Prison Begs To Be Hanged To Death Instead

A man sentenced to 72years in prison has requested to be hanged instead because he was unable to exorcise the evil spirit that led him into committing the crimes.  A court has sentenced a 31-year-old serial rapist to an effective 72 years in prison.

According to Herald newspaper, the Zimbabwean regional magistrate, Dambudzo Malunga, sentenced Charles Magombedze of Chikova Village in Masvingo Province to 78 years in prison, but conditionally suspended six years.

Magombedze who was convicted on eight counts of r*pe on his own plea of guilty, shocked the court when he requested the hangman’s noose, saying he was unable to exorcise the evil spirit that led him into committing the crimes if left alive.

On his initial appearance in court on Tuesday, Magombedze said he was a member of a Satanic Cult whose goal was to spill blood and to have unprotected intercourse to breed another Satanic generation.

Magombedze acknowledged guilty to eight counts of r*pe and pleaded with the courts to hand him a death sentence.

Zimbabwe’s constitution may only permit the death penalty to be imposed on a person convicted of murder committed in aggravating circumstances.

Malunga said Magombedze deserved severe punishment because he had behaved like a beast by committing the offences.

Armed with dangerous weapons such as iron bars, axes and machetes, Magombedze molested more than 10 victims, including a 14-year-old girl and a police constabulary’s wife.

Magombedze also faces attempted murder charges after he allegedly stabbed a woman five times in an attempt to r*pe her and other charges related to unlawful entry and theft.
