Bulawayo has been ranked the lowest city in Africa, in terms of housing governance, infrastructure, and the environment. These findings, which many Zimbabweans, may argue with are contained in a survey carried out by Swiss research institute, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. opened one of its report titled Mugabe to hold birthday party in 'worst city in Africa' (but is it really?) by saying, "Is President Robert Mugabe really about to hold his 93rd birthday party right next to the worst city in Africa?

Zimbabweans have found another focus for their outrage: a suggestion that their "City of Kings" Bulawayo is actually the worst city in Africa in terms of housing, infrastructure, governance and the environment. The BBC reports that the finding is contained in a survey by Swiss researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.

The official @CityofBulawayo account hasn't responded yet to the slight. But others have leapt to the city's defence.

"Byo is the best run and cleanest in the country," said @sitshaesihe.

Former education minister @DavidColtart said: "This is pathetic - have these people ever even visited Bulawayo? I call Bulawayo the world's best kept secret!"

Have you ever visited Bulawayo? What do you think of this survey?
