In a tabloid-like news blurb that doesn't identify anyone, we get this...
A man in Zimbabwe has committed the worst crime possible, not once but twice.Worst crime possible? You mean like genocide?
A resident of a village in Zimbabwe left his mother pregnant with his child for the second time and absconded.Abandonment is a terrible thing to do, but hardly the worst crime possible.
The mother also allegedly fled the village, according to reports in the British media.
About four years ago, the mother and son were fined by their village church after the council learnt that the woman was left pregnant by her son.
That's the real crime... fining people for things that are no business of anyone else.
At that time, the woman had miscarried when she was four months pregnant. Now, history has repeated itself.If the villagers would mind their own business rather than interfering the private lives of other people, nobody would feel a need to leave.
The villagers were outraged on learning about the incestuous relationship which has been on since 2008. The woman's husband passed away after a long illness.
Now villagers want to hunt and get the duo back to the village and subject them to harsh punishment to send out a signal to the entire community that such incestuous relationships would not be tolerated.Why? What's the problem? Why don't they focus on their own lives, instead, instead of grabbing pitchforks and torches because two people love each other?
