Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe will "cling to power" for as long as possible, and a popular revolt against him would result in a bloodbath, according to a former U.S. ambassador to the southern African nation that Mr. Mugabe has ruined through disastrous economic and racial policies since 1980.
"A motorist allegedly drove through a blocked-off intersection in front of the president's cortege," Ms. Curran reported. "It is not known how the car managed to bypass the police and Ministry of National Security officers that cordon off the streets where the president's motorcade is going to pass."
The errant driver was "reportedly beaten black and blue" and locked up, Ms. Curran added.
