PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe came close to yet another embarrassing fall when he stumbled while stepping out of his official vehicle on arrival at the Exhibition Centre for the official opening of this year’s Harare Agricultural Show.
Meanwhile the United Nations has urged the government of Zimbabwe to respect the right to peaceful protests. The UN was reacting to violent clashes between Zimbabwe police and opposition demonstrators, who were calling on President Robert Mugabe to step down. Police used tear gas and water cannons against protesters, in violation of a high court order, which gave permission for peaceful demonstrations.
