Local farmer Tendai Musasa has pledged to donate two elephants, two buffalo, two sables, five impalas and a lion worth a combined £78,000 towards the jamboree, Zimbabwe’s Chronicle newspaper reported.
“This is our way of supporting the function and to ensure a celebratory mood in our community as well,” Musasa was quoted as saying. “The total value is $120,000. This reflects the money we get annually and we thought this would be a perfect gesture.”
He added: “At the moment we are making arrangements with the Parks andWildlife Management Authority to slaughter these animals a few days before the day. We are also liaising with the hotel that will keep the meat.”
Mugabe’s government is already under fire for a plan to export 27 live elephants to China, and activists condemned the donation.
