Boarding schools in Zimbabwe have banned students from bringing in certain types of breakfast cereals after discovering they were using it to make alcohol.
Zimbabwe's The Chronicle newspaper reports boarding schools sent notices to parents about brands of cereal and oatmeal porridge that kids could use for make-shift beer.
A local chemist told the Chronicle cereals can be mixed with sugar and yeast to create the concoction, and warned that the drink is particularly dangerous because you can't control the alcohol content in the brewing process.
