Cameroon: Samantha Power’s Motorcade Mows Down African Child and Flees the Scene
21st Century Wire says…
Samantha Power, the neocolonialist wolf in liberal, white, female clothing keeps up appearances even after her motorcade had mowed down an African child during her recent US PR tour of Cameroon.
“Power said she learned of the death with “great sorrow”.
She said she met with the boy’s family to “offer our profound condolences and our grief and heartbreak”.
Power returned to the scene of the bloody accident several hours later to meet the seven-year-old boy’s mother and father, while residents of his village stood solemnly on a sandy expanse.” ~ The Guardian
“The news agency said the motorcade was travelling at speeds of more than 60 mph, while villagers lined up along the sides of the road. But when the boy darted on to the two-lane highway, there was no time for the sixth car in Ms Power’s convoy to react. The driver was Cameroonian.” ~ The Independent

“At the moment of impact, a man could be seen running up the embankment, with his arms held high, to the street to try to stop the child. A Cameroonian helicopter traveling overhead as part of a large security contingent saw the collision.
The vehicle that hit the boy initially stopped but was ordered by American security forces to continue traveling. An ambulance in the US caravan immediately attended to him.
The boy was rushed to a local hospital, though his condition was already hopeless, according to people familiar with the incident, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The motorcade moved at a significantly slower pace for the rest of the day.
Officials did not immediately identify the boy. US officials would not comment immediately on any plans for compensation to the boy’s family.” ~ African Globe
