News from Zimbabwe

I was so engrossed in the escapades of our banana yesterday that I didn't hear any other news. This morning's paper alerted me to the fact of Morgan Tsvangirai's car crash yesterday and the devastating loss of his wife. It's one more tragic twist in the life of people in that country. I don't suppose the truth of the crash will ever be known because the political background means that views are polarised even before the investigation begins and no-one will believe the evidence that doesn't support their view. Meanwhile people continue to become ill and die from easily preventable causes if only the political will was there to put a solution in place.
