Zimbabwe Prime Minister Tsvangirai Injured, Wife Killed in Auto Accident

March 6 (Bloomberg) — Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai was injured and his wife killed in a car crash today outside Harare, officials from his Movement for Democratic Change party said.

Tsvangirai was with his wife, Susan, a party official and a driver at the time of the crash, the prime minister’s spokesman, James Maridadi, said in a telephone interview from Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital. His injuries aren’t believed to be critical, Maridadi said.

“Morgan will be devastated” by his wife’s death, said Eddie Cross, a national executive member of the MDC, in a telephone interview from Harare. “They were very close.”

Tsvangirai’s vehicle was traveling south, heading for Buhera, his home district, where he was to address a political rally tomorrow, Maridadi said. It was hit by a large truck whose driver had fallen asleep, said MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa in a telephone interview today…

    How convenient, perhaps too convenient.

  2. Sad To Say

    This is very sad news. Was the truck driven by a Mugabe croney?

  3. reality check

    Its really quite surreal the damage Mugabe has inflicted on his country and citizens?

    From the Breadbasket of Africa to the breadlines of Africa in two generations its amazing what a savy and wily politician can do spreading racial hate and tribal apartheid.

  4. All DLP politicians are fatter!

    The differences between Zimbabwe and Barbados are legion.

    However, that is not to say that there are no similarities.

    There have been several high profile convenient motor fatalities through the years – from the first black heavyweight champion Jack Johnson to Princes Di. Assassination by motor vehicle is nothing new and usually very difficult to prove.

    Sleeping driver my grandfather’s big toe. That idiot Mugabe must be involve in this.

  7. Stressed Out

    I would also add in Chappaquiddick, and the death of Princess Grace.

  8. Rumboy

    It is reall a sad day for the good people of Zimbawe

  9. The Kennedy’s, Princess Grace and Princess Di are questionable.
    Mugabe is responsible for the deaths of anyone opposing him. He has created a humanitarian emergency in his country.
    Does anyone listen?

    Chill out BFP, Mugabe was not driving the the truck.

    Mugabe had no reason to want Tsvangirai dead.

    The US and Britain were double crossed when Tsvangirai whom they funded with millions to challenge Mugabe, on the understanding that he would reverse the land reforms and return land to whites, did an about-turn on them. Now Tsvangirai joins up with Mugabe, becomes his Prime Minister, says the land reforms are irreversible, and calls for the lifting of western economic sanctions against Zimbabwe. The next day, a US/British truck, out of the millions of vehicles in Zimbabwe, just happens to ram into Tsvangirai’s car, sending it tumbling in the air 7 times.

    A no brainer really. The US and British intelligence are behind the ”accident”. You ignorant soulS here must realise that what is happening in Zim is a battle for the land and resources of Zimbabwe. Mineral wealth worth billions are at stake. The US and Britain want access and control. Mugabe and his party say NO. HENCE THE WEST IMPOSES ECONOMIC SANCTIONS, AND THEN BLAMES MUGABE FOR THE RESULTANT SUFFERING. Open your eyes people and stop being dumb, believing imperialist new agencies like the BBC like robots is not the way to go..

    “The next day, a US/British truck, out of the millions of vehicles in Zimbabwe, just happens to ram into Tsvangirai’s car, sending it tumbling in the air 7 times.”

    here is proof positive of a conspiracy by British/US imperialism?

    Talk about grasping for straws.

    How about Mugabe doesn’t like sharing power with anyone or maybe it was an accident?

    I think a little more information would be in order.
