Zambian Monkeys Banned After President Urinated On, BBC Reports

Sept. 1 (Bloomberg) -- About 200 monkeys are being moved from the grounds of Zambia’s presidency to a botanical garden after one of the primates urinated on President Rupiah Banda during a press briefing, the British Broadcasting Corp. said.

About 61 monkeys have already been moved to the Munda Wanga Botanical Gardens in the capital, Lusaka, the broadcaster said, citing an unidentified official.

Banda suggested that being urinated on by the monkey may bring him good luck, the BBC said, without elaborating.
