On 7th October 2010, in Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe held a ZANU PF rally combined with the official opening of the Women's Empowerment Bank.
In order to entice people to attend this event, 3 elephants, 3 buffaloes and a number of smaller animals were shot and cooked. It is common knowledge that under the current economic climate, many people in the rural areas are starving and will make an effort to attend any function where free food is available.
