Shock as Zhombe Chief tells First Lady that incest kids must be killed

Shock as Zhombe Chief tells First Lady that incest kids must be killed. Chief Samambwa was speaking at the launch of The Midlands Province Integrated Environmental on Monday presided over by the First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa.

Zhombe traditional chief Samuel Samambwa has made shocking calls for children born out of incestuous relationships to be killed so as to avoid misfortune in the country and community.

Being intimate with one’s own blood relation is referred to as incest. “A child who is born from an incestuous relationship is a taboo. That person doesn’t have a lineage or roots as he is from the same blood.

“Even if they are to have a family of their own, such people will still be a taboo. They will still not have roots, even before God,” he said. In the yesteryear, Samambwa said, offspring used to be put to death. “In the yesteryear, people born of such relationships were supposed to be killed.

“If we kill such people, it means we will not continue to have such a lineage. These people are a taboo. It’s not good for our society. Such people must be killed. Having them in our midst creates serious problems for our communities. Even fellow traditional leaders agree with me on that one,” he said.

In her response, the First Lady said killing was against the country’s laws and must not be condoned however those who commit incest must be arrested.
