Zimbabwe's child cadets parade for independence anniversary celebrations





Zimbabwe's child cadets paraded with guns in Harare on Sunday as the country celebrated the 30th anniversary of its independence from Britain.

President Robert Mugabe joined thousands at the National Sports Stadium, where he inspected a guard of honour before giving a keynote speech.

Many people arrived in buses hired by government to ferry residents of poor suburbs to the festivities, while others walked to the Chinese-built stadium.

For the second year running, leaders of Zimbabwe's three main political parties attended the event, which had previously been dominated by Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF party.
