DK’S FAVOURITE DAM
Veteran politician Daniel Kwelagobe is well known for his effortless good sense of humour.
He is the man who once compared Shaw Kgathi’s head to a an anthill to the amusement of many.
He also once sent parliament into a fit of laughter by passing a remark on how fast MP Fidelis Molao who was being welcomed into parliament had gained weight even before he could lay his hands on his first cheque.
One of his favourite expressions which Shaya has heard him say at least twice is a about a dam with a tricky name, with a name which sounds a bit like the Setswana name for female genitalia. Updating residents on developments DK would often like to remind them that the BDP government has developed the country well, they have even built big dams like Nnywane, all to the laughter of many. Why the MP always singles out this dam is still a mystery; and the funny part is in the way he pronounces the name.
It is common knowledge that a receding hairline for women folk in this country is referred to as mmaChiepe, named after the former Minister of Education Dr Gaositwe Chiepe who spotted that look for many years.
Now it seems like the new Ombudsman Festinah Bakwena is spotting a MmaChiepe. It remains to be seen whether her new high profile will change the famous MmaChiepe to MmaBakwena. But now that Honourable
Mme Mma Chiepe has grown back her hair, the famous statement may as well be bestowed on Mme MmaBakwena.
MUSIC FROM PRISON
It is indeed sad to see talented people being sent to prison. Ditiro Leero and Deben Natale’s incarceration has already hurt the infant local music industry.
It is worth noting that it is also sad for the victims of their alleged crimes. While DT has just arrived in prison, his cousin Gongmaster is forging ahead and is working with Shumba Ratshega on a new album. Shaya suggest that DT and Natale should team up and work on a collaboration behind prison walls.
Who knows they could both get a presidential pardon on their birthdays and freedom to record, so guys use those long hours productively.
