Jolie, Pitt call with condolences for Tsvangirai: aide

Monday, Mar 9, 2009

Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have called Zimbabwe’s Premier Morgan Tsvangirai to offer condolences over his wife’s death in a car crash, an aide told reporters Monday.

“He didn’t manage to speak to them because the line was disconnected,” the premier’s aide told reporters at Tsvangirai’s home, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The couple are active in charity work around the world, but have no apparent links to Zimbabwe in particular. Jolie gave birth to one of their children in nearby Namibia and they have adopted a little girl from Ethiopia, among their six children.
