    It was too much of a coincidence for a transit lorry at the instant of sighting Gov Adam‘s convoy to suddenly lose control and veer off the road heading straight to the Comrade Gov‘s car which escaped head on collision by a hair‘s breath. But still rammed into other vehicles in the convoy and causing casualties.
    Methinks this is a master-minded act of a desperate opposition politician who wants to eliminate the Comrde Gov.
    Fortunately the Gov survived the assassination attempt on his life. But unfortunately 3 journalists were killed instead.
    This dastard act of an accident nust be thoroughly investigated and the culprit and cohorts made to pay through their anus.
