Ford Takeaway: New Zim model

GOOD TO GO: A Zimbabwe politician apparently liked the Ford Ranger (similar to this one) at an Harare auto show that he just got in it and drove away.

HARARE, Zimbabwe - State prosecutors in Zimbabwe say an opposition politician at a Ford car show got into the latest model on display and drove it away.

He has been charged with car theft and will appear in court in June.


Court papers say police arrested 38-year-old Aaron Muzungu, an official of a small opposition splinter group, after he clocked up more than 1300km in the new Ford Ranger bakkie. Prosecutors said the politician claimed he was interested in buying the pick-up. When he sat in it, the keys were in the ignition.

Police said security at the show was lax and Ford's local agents played live music and held a cocktail party.

Ford brought the first motor vehicle to colonial-era Rhodesia a century ago.
