Tunisia anger over Zimbabwe rugby team’s street sleeping


The Tunisian Rugby Union has said it “strongly deplores” the “anti-sports and unethical actions” of Zimbabwe’s national team after they slept on the streets before a World Cup qualifier.

Zimbabwe said they were were unhappy with the poor standard of their hotel in Beja, which is about 100km (60 miles) west of the capital, Tunis.

The Tunisian Rugby Union said Zimbabwe’s actions did not reflect their “strong ties of friendship”.

They added Zimbabwe “started complaining” as soon as they landed in the capital, Tunis.

The Tunisian union said a statement:

“The head of the Zimbabwean delegation expressed reservations about the state of the bathroom in one of the rooms, the lack of a swimming pool and the low internet speed.

He started talking about leaving the hotel on the pretext that it is not decent enough for his team.

He asked all the members of the delegation to take out their luggage, leave the hotel and spend the night outside on the ground.”
