  • Zimbabwe: No Goats in Harare City Centre, This Isn't West Africa - Mugabe

    Goats will not be allowed to roam in central Harare, President Robert Mugabe vowed Wednesday, insisting that his government would not tolerate the sort of chaos he has witnessed travelling in West Africa. The veteran leader was addressing a small enterprises expo in the capital when he declared that vendors who have flooded towns and cities across the country will be forcibly moved to designated trading places. Alarmed by the mayhem, the government has ordered the traders to relocate to designated trading places but many have refused to move.
