In Zimbabwe, a serial rapist begged the court to hang him for his heinous crimes. The man was sentenced to 72 years in prison in Zimbabwe.
According to Herald, Magombedze was convicted of eight counts of rape. He shocked the court after claiming he was unable to exorcise the evil spirit that led him to commit the crimes if he was allowed to live.
Malunga said that Magombedze deserved severe punishment because he behaved like a beast when he raped the victims.
He used dangerous weapons like iron bars, axes, and machetes when he committed his crimes. Magombedze raped a woman before abusing a student at Chibaya High School last June.
In the same month, he raped another woman who was doing laundry along the Tugwi River in Chivi. In October of the same year, the convict raped another woman who was going to church.
He also sexually abused a policewoman and raped a 14-year-old girl who was keeping livestock in January of this year.
He raped another woman after making his way to a Charumbira farm. The same month, Magombedze abused a child he found sleeping in a hut in the village of Jeka.
He raped another woman after threatening her near the Stephen Business Center. He also abused a woman in a Rukanda farm garden the same month after hitting her with a brick. Magombedze raped another woman he found in a garden along the Tugwi River.
Magombedze also faces attempted murder after stabbing a woman five times that he was not able to rape because she managed to escape.
In his first appearance in court on Tuesday, Magombedze said he was a member of a satanic cult whose purpose was to shed blood and have unprotected sex to raise another satanic generation.
