Police looted Prime Minister's property after the accident

HARARE – Police who attended to the accident scene of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai on Friday reportedly looted cash and cellphones, a senior Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) official said Saturday. Tsvangirai was involved in a head on collusion at around five on Friday evening, 52 miles outside Harare along the Masvingo highway, just before the Mhondoro Ngezi turn-off.

He was admitted at a private hospital in Harare where he has been released. His wife Susan, died a few hours later and was taken to Beatrice Hospital where her body was reportedly transferred to a funeral palour in Harare, MDC sources said.

A top MDC official who requested anonymity and who was part of the three-car motorcade travelling with the party president said the police looted an unspecified amount of cash as well as cellphones.
"The police took advantage of the situation and looted some goods and cash, we do not know how the goods disappeared but we managed to recover
some of them," said the MDC official.
Up to now, the MDC official said, they do not know where the goods went. Police spokesperson, Asssistant Commisioner Wayne Bvudzijena could not
be reached for a comment.
Meanwhile  Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai on Saturday left the Harare clinic where he was treated for injuries sustained in a car crash that killed his wife, an AFP reporter outside the clinic said.

Tsvangirai walked out of the Avenues Clinic accompanied by his deputy Thokozani Khupe, Finance Minister Tendai Biti and Economic Planning Minister Elton Mangoma.

Onlookers outside the clinic applauded as he came out, before he was driven away in a maroon Mercedes Benz and has since been flown to Botswana for further medical tests and treatment.
