A woman was arrested, charged and convicted of trespassing after breaking into her neighbor’s home to defecate on her floor, prosecutors in Zambia said.

Now, 22-year-old Cleopatra Mulele of Kabwe, has been sentenced to one month of community service after being found guilty of trespassing.

According to the police investigation, Mulele unlawfully entered the home of Margaret Nachamba, with intent to commit a crime or to annoy.

Nachamba told investigators that on the day of the incident, around 6:00 a.m., she went to buy water, but when she returned home, she found Mulele defecating in the house.

When she asked Mulele what she was doing, she did not answer. Nachamba then pushed Mulele out of her house and called the police.

Mulele, a married mother of one child, apologized to the victim in court before sentencing.
