Absurd: Ram was sentenced to three years in jail and this is why

Ram

A ram that allegedly headbutted a lady to death has been given a three-year prison sentence.

Adhieu Chaping, 45, was attacked by the ram, who repeatedly pounded her in the chest before she passed away over the weekend.

The ram was sentenced to imprisonment at a military camp as part of its punishment by traditional leaders in South Sudan.

It happens after the victim’s family was informed that the owner of the ram would give them five cows as part of his or her death compensation.

“The ram attacked by hitting her ribs and the old woman d!ed immediately,” Police major Elijah Mabor told Sudan’s Eye Radio.

“So this is what happened in Rumbek East in a place called Akuel Yol.

“Our role as police is to provide safety and separate fights. The ram was apprehended and currently under custody at a Police Station of Maleng Agok Payam.”

Authorities confirmed the two families have agreed that the owner will give the family of the deceased cows based on local understanding put in place by community elders, reports Ghanawish.

The owner of the ram has since been identified as Duony Manyang Dhal.

According to County administrator Paul Adhong Majak, the owner and the victim’s family are related and neighbours.

It has been reported that the ram will be gifted to Chaping’s family once it is released from prison, under local law.

The families have had to sign a contract to formalise the agreement with cops, in which community leaders were present as witnesses.
