This news item brought a smile to my face this morning.
Not only are they corrupt, ineffective and responsible for undermining the sovereignty of the country they are also causing accidents.
And here I was, blaming the speeding VIP convoys for many accidents. It is only now that we learn the truth.
I have been told that one of the causes for accidents are the lousy brakes on the Land Rovers. Land Rovers, being typical British cars, have a reputation for mechanical problems and on top of that the brakes are supposed to be pretty bad which makes for a lethal combination.
Why these vehicles are so popular is a bit of a mystery but they are reputed to be good performers-chiefly due to the light aluminium body which gives and excellent weight/power ratio. Indeed the rugged body is one of the main strengths of the vehicle.
The rest is largely due its reputation which is bolstered by the cinema. As for me, give me the Toyota Landcruiser or Nissan Patrol anyday.
