Mugabe motorcade in fatal crash

2012-10-03 14:45

Cape Town - A motorcyclist in Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's motorcade has died after his bike hit the side of a lorry while he was trying to clear traffic at Borrowdale village in Harare, according to a report on Wednesday.

The Zimbabwe Mail said the motorcyclist's bike exploded on impact and he was burnt beyond recognition.

This is the fourth accident involving Mugabe's motorcade this year, but the first time that one of its members has died.

      On a Saturday in 2000, I was travelling with three members of my team from Harare to the Lion park when one of these traffic officers (on motorcycle) passed us at great speed, indicating us to pull over and stop on the side of the road. A few minutes later a second traffic officer on motorcycle passed us at great speed, then a third before the Mugabe's motorcade (three vehicles). The first officer gives you the first warning. I learnt from my team that if you have not pulled over to the side of the road by the second warning, the third officer will open fire on you. The speed at which this motorcade travels does not surprise me with respect to the above mentioned casualty.

    I smell a conspirecy? It's the opposition party. They can't get rid of Bob. Heis as alusive as Hitler was. Three times in one year. Luck of the Zimbabweans.

  • magomarele - 2012-10-03 15:14

    And the brainless dictator survives to see another day. I'm sad. He should've been the one who burnt beyond recognition, not the poor biker.

  • bill.mckimm.9 - 2012-10-03 15:48

    Good idea! We should get the man himself riding one of these bike. A good explosion with him on it would do the world a power of good.

    Not to worry old Robert hasn't got long to live.

      keithpatkell - 2012-10-03 18:28

      Stewart and Dunkie56, here's a real "good idea"... let's start a you say Stewart, ol' Madbob Mugaby surely cant hang on too much longer. I don't know how to, but someone can open up a Website where we can predict the hour and day when Madbob finally "buys the farm" and every time one lodges a prediction one pledges a Rand. The prizepool will soon build up and the day the "big event happens" the winners share the pool! Cool hey?

  • Mike Peach - 2012-10-03 17:20

    Its a sign Bob death is getting closer.
