Tsvangirai: Crash an Accident

Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, who recently finalized a power-sharing deal with aging dictator Robert Mugabe, sought to allay concerns today that the car accident last week that left his wife dead and him injured was an assassination attempt. It was an accident, he said: “There was only a ‘one in a thousand’ chance that the incident involved any foul play.” The PM’s vehicle flipped three times after being struck by an out-of-control truck carrying aid for HIV/AIDS patients. Tsvangirai, still noticeably shaken by the episode, today thanked God for 31 years with his wife, Susan, and asked his supporters to join him in celebrating her life.
