Zimbabwe tin foil hat required?

#2
High, it's a very complex way to assassinate someone with no guarantee of a result, I doubt anyone would consider it. If Mugabe wanted Tsvangirai dead there's lots of better ways to do it.

Well if you're getting into tin foil hat land then the quetion becomes who was behind it - ZanuPF, the larger Tsvangirai lead MDC or the smaller Mutambara lead breakaway MDC? ;)

If it was an accident then it didn't work, Tsvangirai is still kicking.
Just seemed a little opportune a few weeks after Tsvangirai actually got into his office.
We all know Mugabe is capable of just about anything!

Does anyone really beleive that Uncle Bob and Pals would allow anyone to share in the government of Zim. An accident or an 'arranged accident'.

Mr Tsavgari probably will withdraw from politics now, and Uncle Bob and Pals will beleive that they have finally beaten any opposition.....

Sad...!!

I wonder if the truck driver will commit suicide in a fit of remorse.

It certainly may tie up some embarrassing loose ends.

Anyone who has been to Africa will know how bad the standards of driving are over there.

If Bob had wanted Morgan topped he would have put a bullet through the back of his head after he had been involved in the 'accident' that Morgan survived is testament that it was an accident.

He might be the media's darling but I've yet to be convinced that he's that much better...

Fair point, I will reserve judgement until Mr Tsvangirai emerges from hospital. I guess if he doesn't come out in a box it will be a strong indicator

There are no dual carriageways on Harare's inter-city roads, making overtaking dangerous, the BBC News website's Africa editor Joseph Winter says.

Traffic accidents are common, he adds, often because of speeding and drink-driving.
From BBC website...... Great reporting, Harare has plenty of dual carriageways.Most of the major roads in harare are DC's. Speeding is less of an issue as no one has the petrol, drink driving is a problem, but only at night when there are no checkpoints. From someone who has driven round Harare this report is a load of bollocks.

Roads are quiet and this kinda of accident would be rare. But even if it is an accident know one would believe it. I expect if it is an attempt on Morgan, it won't be Mugabe it will be one of the Generals or the Mujuru's

Agreed, at the moment I'm 50/50.

Using the 'special police' (JSO) to assassinate opposition political figures was one of Milosevic's tricks. On at least one occasion, they used a truck running head on into oncoming traffic to try and take out one opponent. 4 got killed in that one.

Or shall we wait for the announcement that;

'We regret to inform you that Mr Tsvangirai died of complications on the operating table. The complications were that his head fell off due to a snooker table inadvertently falling though the roof of the surgery'.

Futher to that point though has anyone here seen an every day African politicians cavalcade?

I saw one in Kenya a few weeks back and if Zims is anything like that which I saw then to be 'singled out' in an RTA is extremely unlucky.

The "accident" was on the utterly shite two laner between Harare and Beitbridge, not in Harare
