'All hell will break loose': Opposition official on Zimbabwe's #bondnotes

Less than a week after Zimbabwe introduced its controversial bond notes, the under-fire central bank has sent out an SMS to local phone numbers detailing the specific features of these notes.

Harare - A fishing club in Zimbabwe says one man died and another was hurt in a crocodile attack in the country's northwest.

The National Anglers Association said on Wednesday that Zimbabwean national Frank Trott, aged in his 70s, died after trying to rescue a friend paddling along the shoreline at Charara fishing camp.

Two crocodiles were shot dead by wildlife rangers afterwards and remnants of the victim - including intestines and clothing - were found along the shores of Lake Kariba.

The dead man was dragged away by a giant crocodile after the man went to assist his friend, said Mike Brennan, head of the fishing group. The friend, aged in his 40s and a fellow farmer with experience in the African wilderness, was treated for wounds to his waist and buttocks.
