Monkey urinates on Zambian president as he addresses diplomats and journalists in state house lawns.
LUSAKA, ZAMBIA (JUNE 24, 2009) REUTERS -
A monkey urinated on Zambian President Rupiah Banda as he spoke to journalists at a news conference on Wednesday (June 24).
As Banda was about to make a comment about the opposition he looked up and said: "And the leaders of the opposition . . .aah, the monkey has urinated on me" before chuckling at the scene.
As the president paused to look above him, he saw the animal playing in a tree just above his chair.
He continued his address amid laughter from the audience of journalists and diplomats at the State House presidential offices.
Several monkeys play around the grounds of Banda's residence and his office. There are also many species of antelope and birds in the State House grounds.
