Zimbabwe blames cholera on Britain

Zimbabwe's information minister has blamed the British government for the cholera outbreak, claiming his country has been a victim of a "biological" attack.

Sikhanyiso Ndlovu's sensational accusation comes a day after Robert Mugabe, the president, said his government had brought the epidemic under control.


"I would like to affirm with factual information on how cholera was brought to Zimbabwe," Ndlovu told a news conference on Friday.

"This is a serious biological-chemical weapon; a genocidal onslaught on the people of Zimbabwe by the British [who are] still fighting to recolonise Zimbabwe and using their allies."   Al Jazeera
