A daring baboon caused a scene in Harare Central Business District on Thursday as it menacingly jumped from tree to tree at City Sports Diner along Samora Machel avenue.
The naughty mammal, a rare sight in busy Harare went about its branch management business like there is no tomorrow as passers-by looked in shock while some took photographs.
Some jokingly said the baboon was there to follow the budget presentation to be made by the Minister of Finance Mthuli that afternoon.
The more mythical argued the baboon might be a bad omen for a country that is undergoing a myriad of misfortunes, deadly car, train and plane accidents, unexplained fire accidents and economic challenges.
Officials from Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Management later arrived and caged it away.
