Chief Fines Villagers For Snubbing A Funeral

Chief Fines Villagers For Snubbing A Funeral

In a controversial traditional court ruling, Chief Madziwa has fined eleven villagers for snubbing a funeral in his area, a verdict the convicted strongly oppose, and threatened to appeal to higher judicial authorities.

The eleven, from Zunde B Village, were convicted of snubbing a funeral in the neighbouring Zunde A village.

The convicts chose to work their fields instead.

Chief Madziwa fined the villagers goats, a judgement they strongly oppose, arguing it was not mandatory to attend funerals.

The villagers also complained that the fine was not applied uniformly, with some of them asked to pay more goats than others for the same ‘crime.’

They have threatened to appeal against the judgement.

I think we all know that if there is a funeral in the area by respect we shouldn't work in fields, tonobatawo maoko. But there is no law either traditional or judicial that prohibits people from working their fields when there is a funeral.
