The Goat bride

A Sudanese man who was caught raping a goat was forced to marry the animal in line with a law in that country that stipulates that any man caught sleeping with a woman who is not his wife must marry her to save the honour of her family.


So when Charles Tombe was caught in the act while having sex with the female goat, he was made to consummate the 'love' relationship with it to save its honour as a form of restitution.

On the day of the bizarre wedding, he and his 'bride' were clad in matching outfits as they walked before the village council to celebrate the happy union, after he had paid a dowry to the owner of he goat.

The goat’s owner, identified as Mr Alifi, said he was the one who caught the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders and the council ordered Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Alifi.

“We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together,” Alifi said.

Alifi, of Hai Malakal in Upper Nile State, told the Juba Post newspaper that he heard a loud noise around midnight on 13 February and immediately rushed outside to find Tombe with his goat.
