Zimbabwean Prime Minister's wife killed in car crash
The wife of Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, Susan, has died as a result of her injuries sustained in a car crash on Friday, party officials confirmed, dpa reported.
"Morgan is badly bruised and cut, but I'm afraid Susan has died," said Eddie Cross, a member of the MDC executive.
The accident occurred on a notoriously dangerous stretch of road about 100 km south of Harare. Accounts from different officials varied, but James Maridade, Tsvangirai's spokesman said his vehicle side-swiped an oncoming vehicle and rolled three times.
The couple were travelling in an MDC Landcruiser with two accompanying security vehicles, on their way to Buhera in the south-east of the country for a rally of his Movement for Democratic Change.
"Morgan will be devastated, they were a real team," said Cross.
