Dan Reba: Ok, seriously people, who are the heartless piece of ‘somethings’ that gave orders like these. Poor old Grandmother, doubt she will have the will to build herself another house.
Ruth Moloi: So people actually did that? What is this world coming to?
Modiri Garenamotse: Father forgive them for they don’t know what they are going.
Disang Monkge: The law has taken its course but this is heartless, how do authorities expect Granny to recover her losses or they will build her a house?
Joy Thabi Kube: Botswana is nothing but land! Then what is the heartlessness that is being done with these demolitions? God hear our cries to end such things. We are very few people amidst a vast piece of land, yet people are homeless. We are one of the richest countries in Africa, yet our people are starving. Anyone else see anything wrong with that picture?
MR PRES MEET GRANNY
Readers have urged the President Ian Khama to fulfil a granny’s dying independence wish to meet the President.
Englishrose Mat: The President is going to get the blessings, wish I was him. So Mr Pres, go and meet that Granny!
Boitumelo Lere: Mr President go and see that Granny, I’m telling you that the more you will meet her the more your blessings will come.
Brandon Jay Walker: I hope her wish becomes a reality. I sometimes wish that Seretse Khama was here to celebrate this day with us. He led the country to this point. May his soul rest in peace.
Isaac Mosweu: I just hope by the time I write this that you have already visited the Granny Mr President. Time is of the essence. I have a feeling I am going to grow to be her age and tell Mr President’s son that I was there when he (Mr President) was President and went on a years’ sabbatical.

Refilwe Gracious Gabofiwe: The day I read this article I had a sleepless night I tell you. I can’t stop thinking about his family not to mention the deceased
Cassolinho Carlin Freeman Selogelo: Is this the Vision 2016 that is always blabbed about?
Crash Nonoza Maphorisa: Ag this is not politics, it’s a brutal act by people who have no regard for life. They pulled the trigger, not our President. I wish the one who pulled the trigger gets executed and the rest rot in jail
LOVING THE VOICE:
“Salute! I am really into this newspaper- 100%! I have no choice but to include it into my weekly budget. You better believe that even though I am still a novice. I like the fact that it exposes touching matters like relationship litigations, corruption by government officials, poverty overwhelming our people in distant areas. Big up and I will forever be your loyal reader.” Kagiso Ramakata via our social media page.
