Robert Mugabe’s Motorcade Kills One and Injures 15

Telegraph (London), June 19, 2012

One person has been killed and 15 injured by Robert Mugabe’s motorcade, in the third such accident in two weeks in Zimbabwe.

National police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena blamed the accident on Sunday on a commuter bus that did not make way fast enough for the passing motorcade. One of the cars leading the motorcade then rammed into the bus.

“The driver of a commuter minibus failed to heed the siren and beacon of the escort vehicle resulting in a head-on collision between the minibus and the police vehicle,” Mr Bvudzijena said.


The crash happened on the Robert Mugabe highway just outside the president’s home town of Zvimba.

Police VIP protection spokesman Martin Mbokochena criticised “some unruly elements in society who want to disturb.”

This was the third incident and third death in two weeks involving Mugabe’s motorcade.

Two weeks ago a motorbike in the presidential cavalcade hit and killed a mentally disabled man, while a member of the presidential guard died and seven others were injured when a truck in the motorcade overturned after one of its tyres burst.

  • I mean seriously what is there left to say?  These “people”, and I use the term loosely, can’t even drive their Zulu Chief around without causing mayhem, violence and death.  

  • So lemme get this straight, the driver realized the bus wasn’t moving out of the way and he still kept his foot on the accelerator?

        If a (white) person would step out in front of the POTUS motorcade, when they would also get run over because it would be interpreted as an ambush. For some reason the Presidents think the the US will come to a grinding halt if they are killed. I can’t see why anyone would want to kill a negro. Whites would lose their welfare and food stamps if the noble negro was killed.

    Didn’t the black Rhodesians get upset when Smith and his government killed black people?

    Oh, if a White guy kills a black guy then there is hell to pay….but if a Black guy kills 15 blacks guys……………silence………..sure is quiet here………………………, cricket, cricket……..

      When did Ian Smith kill blacks?

      • IstvanIN

        When Ian Smith’s government killed rebels trying to overthrow the government, that was a bad thing.  When Mugabe kills pedestrians on his way to the liquor store, well, that is just an accident.

    If I am not mistaken, Ian Smith drove himself to work in his own car…..

    Well, at least they got their freedom.  Freedom to be starved, jobless, killed for sport etc.

  • Sherman_McCoy

    Apparently, they’d rather just eat Whites.

  • Sloppo

    I disagree with “If blacks suffer and starve and die by Black rule the world is completely silent.”  They’re not completely silent.  They issue earnest requests to whites for food donations.  The rest of your post I agree with.

    As unfortunate as it sounds, there is something almost funny about Captain Bob’s motorcade running down zimbabweans.  This was a guy who was supposed to be a tribune of his people (although it is obvious he is just another african “big man” bent on looting his own country), and here his reckless/stupid/violent keystone-kop security detail are running down the common folk as if he were a callous ancien-regime french marquise crushing the peasants under the wheels of his carriage.

    Blacks seem to have a unique capacity to be at once menacing and ridiculous.

    I heard, from a reliable source, of an elderly white woman who got confused and/or didn’t hear the approach of Mugarbage’s  convoy – his thugs riddled her car with bullets.  I am sure there were many more cases like this, yet Ian Smith used to drive himself to work in an old Peugeot.   During a period when – due to the UN embargo enforced by British warships – they were very short of oil, he cycled.   After he was deposed by the west Mugabe’s governMUNT afforded him no security and he would answer his own door.   This was reported by the occasional western reporter who visited him, yet the same reporters would (in their article) slander and ridicule him as a “colonialist dinosaur”, or some such disparaging remark.   

    Smith and his wife also walked freely in the streets of Salisbury/Harare where blacks would greet him and say how much better things were under his government.   Yet the liberal media never had a good word for him – the former WW2 fighter pilot is relentlessly slandered as a colonialist tyrant who oppressed blacks.   Yet, after 15 years in charge of what was then a very prosperous country, he died in obscurity and (presumably) relative poverty in an old peoples home in Fish Hoek, a very basic Cape Town suburb.    If he had stolen even 1% of the typical black ruler he would have been able to afford at the very least Constantia, Cape Towns richest suburb, of Mark Thatcher fame.   Or, if he were black, Cannes or Monaco.

    I lived in Sub Saharan Africa through all the changes, and now many black Zimbabweans who remembered the days of Ian Smith would welcome him and his government back with open arms.  Now they dare not speak about it as accidents happen too often.  But Ian Smith did indeed walk around freely as did, all the white African leaders and few of us in the West wish to admit that a large proportion of the black Rhodesians fought alongside the whites to keep the murdering and robbing terrorists out of power but the West, especially Britain, wanted to be obeyed, bloody Socialists again who have since been proven to be racists as well with the results being tens of thousands of black Zimbabweans dying under Mugabe’s rule:  all betrayed by the Western leaders. Mugabe and his mobs used to visit the tribal areas where the blacks used to live as they wanted to with chiefs and the tribal systems and cut off noses, ears and lips of many to force the others to join his terrorists.  But the government of Harold Wilson in Britain ignored these atrocities and insisted that the crimes would stop when the terrorists (freedom fighters?) were given what they were fighting for.  Now terrorism is an accepted way to fight wars as they work against such idiotic governments who let them win to appease them.

    It is a cruel World when many of your own ignorant people are stupid and encourage the Third-Worlders to use terror to win.

    The big chief is coming through look out everyone!! Risking life and limb so the big boss man can get somewhere. It sounds like they need to get back to their roots of motorcades and “be keeping it real”, the White mans automobile may be too much for them to handle.

  • chuck_2011

     Rhodesia was doomed the second it elected its first black leader.

  • WhitesRdumb

     It’s all because of white racism.

    Nothing to see here. Move along, move along.

  • Wallace

    I can’t believe this guy and his thugs were able to bring white Rhodesia to its knees.
