A cheeky monkey urinated on President Rubiah Banda of Zambia at a State House press conference yesterday.
No, this is not a joke.
Banda, who had called the press conference to discuss vice-presidential candidates and the Zambian economy, looked up and shouted at the monkey:
"You have urinated on my jacket!"
The press conference was held under a tree in the Zambia State House grounds, where Kaunda famously strolled with Rhodesian PM Ian Smith accompanies by zebra and the other wildlife that is kept there.
Banda was in Zimbabwe in April this year, where he officiated at the opening of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair.
Born in Zimbabwe, the Zambian president also paid a visit to Gwanda in Matabeleland, where he grew up.
The monkey that urinated on the President Banda apparently made no attempt to run away.
And it was brave of Rupiah, was it not, for him to look up that tree where the monkey was sitting. What if.....
