Drama as male prisoner detained in female cells. The suspect, Praise Mpofu, was detained for a couple of days from 1-4 October 2021 at Young Offenders Prison in Gweru where it was thought that he was a woman. A 22-year-old male prisoner who pretended to be a woman was almost detained in cells at Shurugwi Female Prison last week.

The Mirror reported sources as saying that Mpofu was dressed in a blouse and skirt, a laddish hairstyle as well as a bra which he stuffed with some materials so that it would appear as if he had breasts.

Midland Prisons spokesperson Nevson Tagarira confirmed the case and told The Mirror that Mpofu came to court dressed as a woman. He said:

Yes, there was a male inmate who came from ZRP through Gweru Magistrates Court pretending to be female. His true status was only discovered at Shurugwi Female Prison as he was undergoing admission processes.

Mpofu who goes around hooking male clients by disguising himself as a female prostitute was arrested on 30 September this year after he allegedly stole from a man in Mkoba 6 who had taken him home for the night and ran away.

He was arrested at Mkoba 6 and remanded in custody at Gweru Magistrates Court but due to transport problems, he had to be taken to Gweru Young Offenders Prison in Gweru where he stayed with young female offenders.

The magistrate, court officials, police and prison officers did not realise Mpofu was male. His status was discovered when she was sent to Shurugwi Female Prison and the procedure at the prison is that inmates are searched and vetted at the time of arrival.

A female nurse who was doing the screening is said to have screamed and ran away from the room after realizing that Mpofu was a man. Mpofu has immediately whisked away to Whawha Maximum Prison near Gweru where he is now detained. There is speculation that Mpofu is a homos.e.xual. He is being charged with theft.
