CONVINCED: Thabologo MUM: Shathiso

A Chadibe man shocked his mum when he disowned his biological father and insisted that the President was his real dad.

24-year-old Thabologo Sam repeated his claim earlier this week when he walked into The Voice offices in Francistown, but when contacted for a comment his mother dismissed her son’s bizarre claim as ‘madness.’

Mum Shathiso Sam who has never even seen the Head of State in person let alone been impregnated by him said:  “The boy is just obsessed with the President and can even beat you when you say anything negative about him. He just came out with the idea earlier this year when he produced President Khama’s photo and said the man was his real father.”

The mother of four added that when she asked her son what he meant he just went berserk, and as way of cooling him down she agreed that he was indeed the child of the President. “He loves the President so much that he becomes very angry when seeing any cartoon or anything which paints Khama in negative colours.

“But what worries me is that my son now sleeps outside the house saying that his father will be coming to build a better place for him.”

Although her son does not have any medical record, Shathiso is convinced that he has mental problems. The woman said when investigating her son’s condition some people told her that it was common for mentally disturbed people to associate themselves with rich and famous personalities.

“His real father is married to another woman and works at Sua Town,” she said explaining that she was now planning to take her son for a psychiatric examination,

Reasserting his claim Sam told reporters: “I am President Khama’s son, even my mother knows that. Don’t I look like the President?” He asked, although admitting that he had never had the chance to meet and sit down with Khama.

He said that he had tried to visit him in Gaborone but security officers at the Office of the President turned him away.

“Just like any other person I love my father and wanted to meet him. I don’t want to claim any maintenance because I am a grown up who can take care of himself. All I need is for people to know that the President has a son who loves him so much,” he said.

Contacted for a comment, government spokesperson Jeff Ramsay said though not common, he would not rule out people going around claiming to be related to the head of state one way or the other.
