Three jailed for forcing girl, 13, to have sex with dog

By Calvin Palmer

Three former employees of a Canadian mining company have each been jailed for 20 years for forcing a 13-year-old girl to have sex with a dog.

Magistrate Gadiel Mariki passed sentence on the two men and a woman after finding them guilty of “forcing a girl to have sex with a dog” in the northern Tanzanian city of Mwanza in March 2008.

Job Mlama,30, Anicet Edward, 30, and Shija Madata, 18, were employed by Canadian mining exploration company, Barrick Exploration Africa Limited (BEAL) at Mwanza. They were fired by the company shortly after the incident.

Mariki said the trio lured the schoolgirl into the BEAL workers’ campsite, and convinced her to spend the night there before forcing her into bestiality.

The court ordered that the dog, owned by one of the expatriates at BEAL, be turned over to the police.

Women’s rights activists condemned the sentence as too lenient.

“These people deserved the death penalty or a life term,” said Ichikaeli Maro, the former head of a women’s rights group. “It is a horrible, despicable offence.”

Director of the Tanzania Women’s Legal Aid Committee Rehema Kerefu said: “They deserved a punishment that should be a lesson to others with such a habit.”
