Zimbabwe’s President, Mugabe plans to slaughter 2 elephants and 1 Lion to celebrate his 91st birthday

Zimbabwe's president, Robert Mugabe plans to celebrate his 91st birthday by slaughtering two elephants and a lion.

The slaughter of the animals to provide meat for 20,000 guests that will be attending the birthday party of the notorious dictator who has ruled Zimbabwe for the past 35 years has angered many.

Workers in the country have also been forced to contribute to the feast, as teachers had $10 taken.from their monthly pay to finance  the party which would cost. Mugabe at least $1m at the Victoria Falls.

Innocent Hamandishe, from Mugabe's Zanu-PF party said: "We are going to ensure that the wonder of Zimbabwe celebrates his 91st birthday where one of the wonders of the world is,"

Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer described the plan as shameful.

He said; "To plan the slaughter of endangered species like this does not accord honour to any individual or nation, in fact it, quite rightly, it brings only shame and embarrassment. There is no dignity in such a demonstration of self-indulgent lack of care and brutality"

Johnny Rodrigues, chairman of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, described the plan as "totally unethical."

"I am totally disgusted by the news, We claim to have the best conservationist policies in the world, but our president does not set a good example. How can he talk of anti-poaching when he is allowing this to happen?"
