Zimbabwe PM's Wife Killed

Zimbabwe Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, a biiter rival to despotic President Robert Mugabe, faced terrible news today.

Tsvangirai's wife died in a car crash, raising immediate speculation that Mugabe was somehow responsible. It seems far-fetched to assign him blame for the death, even given Mugabe's miserable failings as a leader of a once-prosperous nation. But in a country where repression and poverty are all Mugabe's doing, it's the lastest speculation with the car crash that he is "behind it all."
