Cape Town – Wild animals are reportedly set to be slaughtered and served at President Robert Mugabe's 91st birthday party, a development that has enraged conservationists.

A report by the Chronicle said a prominent farmer, Tendai Musasa had pledged to donate two elephants, two buffalos, two sables, five impalas and a lion worth a combined $120 000 towards the president's birthday bash that will be held on 28 February.

According to The Guardian the conservationists have branded the plans as unethical.
