Zambian Monkeys Evicted For Peeing On President Banda (VIDEO)

Don't cross Zambia's President Rupiah Banda, especially when he's in the middle of a news conference. This was the lesson learned by about 200 monkeys living on the grounds of the state house, who were evicted from their home after Banda was urinated on by one of them during a press briefing.

Not that the monkeys weren't given a decent new place to reside: they will be moving to the Munda Wanga Botanical Gardens, Bloomberg reports. Banda, for his part, apparently meant the monkeys no ill will, telling the BBC that the incident may bring him good luck.
