‘Female Prisoner’ Is Discovered To Be Actually Male in Zimbabwe.

Things got really ugly and hectic at SHurugwi Female Prison in the past week, and this is said to have happened after a supposedly female prisoner was discovered that he is actually man.

Many people were left in shock and wondering why he did this. Well According to the Masvingo Mirror, when this arrest took place, a 22-year-old Praise Mpofu was dressed as a woman. It is said that Mpofu was in some business where he pretended to be a female during night time in order to just entice men and steal from them.

It was reported that Mpofu got arrested after he stole from a man from Gweru’s Mkoba 6 suburb. The man had hired Mpofu’s services, while under the impression that he was dealing with a woman. When they got to his home where they were supposed to spend the night, Mpofu stole from the man and ran away.

At the time of his arrest, he was seen in Mkoba , and he appeared as a woman, dressed in ladies clothes, he was wearing a skirt and a blouse with a bra.He never revealed that he was male.

When Mpofu appeared at the Gweru Magistrate’s Court facing charges of theft, he did not reveal that he was actually male and continued with the ruse. As a result, the magistrate ordered that he should be remanded at the Shurugwi Female Prison.

But with logistical issues, Mpofu could not be transported to the female prison.So they decided to keep him at the Gweru Young Offenders Prison where he was sheltered with juvenile female offenders for two days.

Whenthey eventually found transport to transport him, something shocking was then revealed by the prison officials. They had found out the truth about him, that he is a man.

Midland Prisons spokesperson Nevson Tagarira confirmed the case to the Masvingo Mirror and here is what he said:

“Yes, there was an inmate who came from ZRP through the magistrate’s court pretending to be a female. It was only identified at Shurugwi Female Prisons through our normal channels on admission that he was actually a male inmate, not a female as he was pretending to be. Mpofu was taken from Shurugwi female prison to Hwahwa Maximum Prison on the same day.”

And another source told the public this:

“Mpofu spend two days at Gweru Young Offenders prison where he did not divulge that he was a male and he was treated as a female. The matter came to light when he was to be detained at Shurugwi Female Prison that he was not a female. One could not figure out that Mpofu is a male he had a nice hairstyle, breasts and he was wearing a skirt just like a lady. Mpofu was arrested after he stole from a man who had hired him as a prostitute, Mpofu stole money and fled before he fulfilled the duties he was hired for.”

This act is a serious crime.Many people are shocked and some are in disbelief as yo how he could do all this.
