HARARE, Zimbabwe: The prime minister of Zimbabwe, Morgan Tsvangirai, was hurt and his wife, Susan, fatally injured on Friday in a car crash about 45 miles south of the capital, according to officials of Tsvangirai's political party, the Movement for Democratic Change.

Tsvangirai was heading to his rural home for a Saturday rally when the crash occurred Friday afternoon. From his hospital bed in Harare on Friday, he told one of his aides that a large truck driving on the other side of the road had come toward his Land Cruiser, the middle vehicle in a three car convoy. The truck driver told the police that he had fallen asleep at the wheel, said the aide, Dennis Murira, director of public affairs in the prime minister's office.

"What he told me was that the truck went for his car," Murira said. "That's how he put it."

Well, Mugabe just said he was going to get rid of him, and that it was not our business to criticize him for it.

Tsvangirai is the good guy. Bauer wouldn’t do Mugabe’s dirty work.

One well placed BB would end the misery for lots of people in Zimbawe.

Mugabe is a typical Commie, and has no clue what he faces when he meets his maker. He thinks he is above any law, he ultimately is not.

Gentlemen, we are looking into the Abyss and this is what we have to look forward to if we do not oppose what is happening here.

The British should have arranged for Mugabe to have an accident years ago.

Mugabecides will b emulated by Obamacides. The model the Kenyan pretender wants to follow may be Cuban, but I suspect he wants to be America's Mugabe. We are currently living with the HOG(Hussein Occupation Government)..
