By James Muonwa


A BULAWAYO man has been sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment by a Beitbridge magistrate following his conviction for killing a specially protected animal species, the black rhinoceros.

The rhino was valued at US$120 000 and nothing was recovered.

According to a statement released by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) on Wednesday, Greaters Nyoni will spend an effective nine years behind bars for the offence.

It was averred that on July 14, 2022, Nyoni and his four accomplices proceeded to Bubye Valley Conservancy armed with a .375 rifle to hunt. While in the park, they spotted a black rhino which they shot and killed using the accused person’s firearm.

The poachers removed the horns which they transported to Harare for sale at an undisclosed amount.

The crime was discovered by game scouts who reported the matter to police leading to the recovery of spent cartridges from the gun.

Following police investigations, Prince Mudenda, whose role in the crime was not explicitly outlined, was arrested on March 26 last year in connection with the offence and implicated Nyoni, who was subsequently accounted for.

A 23-year old Mozambican will spend the next 16 years in a Zimbabwean prison following his conviction and sentencing for raping a minor.

According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), the convict, whose name was not given, was convicted by a Chipinge magistrate after a full trial.

Prosecutors proved that the rape took place on March 12 this year.

The complainant, aged 13, was on her way from their homestead to a nearby business center in Chipinge.

“He grabbed her by the shoulders and dragged her to a nearby bush where he threatened her with a knife before raping her,” said the NPA in a statement.

The court heard the victim screamed for help and was heard by a passerby who rushed to the scene and rescued her while the suspect grabbed his clothes and took to his heels.

Nigeria recalls ‘toxic’ children’s cough syrup


Spread This News

By BBC 


NIGERIA’S drug regulator has recalled a batch of Johnson & Johnson children’s cough syrup after tests showed it contained “an unacceptable high level” of a toxic and potentially fatal substance.

The substance, Diethylene glycol, “was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, Nigeria’s National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) said on Wednesday

It added that human consumption of the Diethylene glycol results in toxic effects, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, inability to pass urine, headache, altered mental state, and acute kidney injury which may lead to death.

The substance has been linked to the recent deaths of dozens of children in Cameroon and The Gambia.

Laboratory tests on the recalled Benylin Paediatric syrup also showed that it caused “acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals”, the regulator added.

Neither Johnson & Johnson nor Kenvue – which owns the Benylin brand after becoming independent from Johnson & Johnson last year- have commented on the NAFDAC’s statement.

The syrup was manufactured in South Africa in May 2021 and had an expiry date of April 2024.

The syrup’s packaging says it can be used for relieving cough and congestive symptoms and for treating fever and other allergic conditions among children aged between two and 12 years.
