I'm not sure if the wiring loom will do much anyway, my wiring has a tight bend in it which in your photos looks like the exact spot it broke.
Exact same thing here, I think it is a poor design that is prone to fail at some point. The more you open and close the trunk, the sooner it will fail. I think twenty's failure is just the tip of the iceberg.
