Vumani Sibanda from Old Magwegwe claims he has a received a calling from God to apply for the job.
He caused a stir, Wednesday, when he barged in a live court proceeding at the Western Commonage court, in the Southern Africa country, and pleaded with court officials to consider him for the position.
He told the court, “I have been failing to sleep for the past week because of this calling. I feel it in my spirit that I should be the State hangman and execute people who bring suffering into our community.”
When the obviously surprised court demanded why he wanted to take up such a mean job, he stated “Imagine the man who sodomised 10 pupils and was sentenced to 29 years in prison. He deserves to die because if he comes out of prison, he is going to commit the same crime”.
I can kill a person as long as he deserves to die. My heart could be at peace if only I could be granted the job.”
