A journalist who was caught in bed with a married woman has been forced to roll in the mud .
However , Zimbabweans on social media are demanding that the Police investigate the circumstances surrounding the “ derogatory punishment ” of Clayton Masekesa , after he was allegedly caught in “ compromising position” with another man ’ s wife.
Clayton , who works with Newsday newspapers , was allegedly caught at the home of Mutare City Football Club secretary general , Soul Tom , whose wife is believed to be his lover, reports iHarare on Monday .
In a viral video , Masekesa was subjected to a military- style punishment , non – stop interrogation , being beaten , being made to display condoms , while he was all the while forced to roll in the mud.
Lawyer Miriam Majome said the “ barbarism” in the videos is unacceptable .
“ Adultery is not a crime ; so , there was nothing to report to the Police .
“ There are civil remedies open to the husband such as adultery damages and divorce . This barbarism is unacceptable . Generally , the increasing lawlessness in this country is disappointing , ” she tweeted.
Veteran journalist, Nevanji Madanhire , also threw in his two cents on the issue, “ Even then he didn ’ t deserve the humiliation ; he should have been reported to the police and properly prosecuted . This treatment of suspects is criminal. ”
Many other Zimbabweans took to social media to lambast the treatment Masekesa received at the hands of his attackers , feeling that it was too harsh and those who meted out the mob justice should be arrested .
