    ABSOLUTELY SHAMEFUL AND DISGRACEFUL the manner Gift is being treated and for his part the person in authority to say
    “For his part Government Spokesperson Dr Jeff Ramsay, said Ncube’s deportation would not have any impact on Botswana’s international reputation.” IS SHAMEFUL AND DISGRACEFUL HE COULD BE MORE EMPATHETIC perhaps if this HAPPENED TO A RICH PERSON HE WOULD BE MORE EMPATHETIC

    perhaps it is DOUBLE STANDARDS AND HYPOCRICY and they have probably let the man who did this Gift to go Scotfree
    gift do not rely on the local HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATIONS GET SOMEONE TO CONTACT AN INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION THAT DEALS WITH PEOPLE LIKE YOU SHAME SHAME SHAME WHERE IS THE LOCAL HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER WHO OFFERED TO ASSIST GIFT? probably took advantage of Gifts literacy issues
    WE WANT TO READ THE ARTICLE ON THE CASE HERE SHAME SHAME HEAR FROM A RELIABLE ONCE IT WAS THE REVERSE THAT MANY WENT ACROSS FROM HERE TO GIFTS COUNTRY TO LEARN FOR A BETTER EDUCATION AND NOW BECAUSE THE TABLES HAVE TURNED THEY ARE INFLICTING ALL THESE ON THE ORDINARY PEOPLE NOT A GOOD IMAGE FOR THE COUNTRY SHAME ON BOTSWANA

    Shame! May God punish the heartless person behind the rushing of deportation of a man who needs justice…and help. May bad luck follow them untill they die. This is a curse. May God show his greatness over this case. May he punish them.

    How on earth can Zimbabwe deny him entry back into his country? Ridiculous! What does the man himself want? Our country should look after him if he wants to stay here! I totally agree that the man who caused all this should look after him. It’s his baby now! I don’t think our country would turn away our citizen coming home like this! Zim is horrible!

    WELCOME TO UNFRIENDLY HOSTILE AND ARROGANT BOTSWANA ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK

  23. Chris M 2014/01/29

    Cheerful, calm down! You can only boo Botswana because it is a good country that usually gets things right. How do you thing Zimbabwe would treat a Motswana in this situation? I don’t think they would want anything to do with an injured illegal immigrant! I wish my country could do the right thing here but realize that they don’t want to set a precedent to be flooded by illegal immigrants hoping to take advantage! Our country spends millions deporting these illegal immigrants from Zimbabwe alone every year only for them to come back one or two weeks later and the cycle repeats itself. Zimbabwe doesn’t care to help as you can see they don’t care about this guy!

  24. cheerful 2014/01/29

    You do not boo a country because it is doing GOOD YOU BOO IT WHEN IT IS DOING THINGS THAT ARE NOT RIGHT LIKE BOTSWANA ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IS AFFORDED THEIR HUMAN RIGHT THERE ARE PEOPLE LEAVING THE AFRICAN CONTINENT IN THEIR DROVES PERISHING IN THE SEA THAT IS NOW NAMED THE SEA OF SHAME BECAUSE THEY WANT TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE

    BOTSWANA SHOULD BE HOSPITABLE TO GIFT DESPITE BEING AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WHO LIVED THERE FOR TEN SOLID YEARS REPEAT TEN SOLID YEARS BECAUSE HE WAS DOING AN HONEST DAYS WORK AND WAS SHOT AND LOST BOTH ARMS .

    BOTSWANA NEEDS TO COME CLEAN WITH MIGRANTS LIKE GIFT

    the founding LEADER OF BOTSWANA MUST BE TURNING IN HIS GRAVE A THOUSAND TIMES BSE HAVE HEARD HOW BOTSWANA HAS CHANGED FOR THE WORST.
    BOTSWANA IS KNOWN FOR ITS ARROGANCE AND HOSTILITY TOWARDS OTHERS FROM THE CONTINENT INCLUDING REFUGEES

    THERE ARE ALOT OF MIGRANTS FROM AFRICA MOVING AROUND THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY WANT TO EARN AN HONEST LIVING INCLUDING FROM BOTSWANA AND SOUTH AFRICA

    THAT IS WHY BOTSWANA AND SOUTH AFRICA NEED TO STOP ITS DOUBLE STANDARDS ON THE ORDINARY PEOPLE OF THE AFRICAN CONTINENT WHO WANT TO EARN AN HONEST LIVING LIKE GIFT AND AFFORD GIFT THE RIGHT TO STAY TO HEAR THE CASE BECAUSE IT WAS A BOTSWANA MAN THAT SHOT HIM

    THE FOLLOWING IS A STATEMENT FROM A HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER IN THE SECOND ARTICLE

    “Commenting on the issue Gaborone based human rights lawyer UyapoNdad said: “This story made me shed a tear.

    HEADLINE NEWS: The Voice front page
    I just can’t believe what our society has turned into. Some of us treat foreigners (particularly those from Zimbabwe) as not worthy human beings.

    We have become a xenophobic and ruthless society, which goes against the aspirations of Vision 2016.”

    On the issue of compensation he added: “No amount of redress or compensation can make good the harm.

    I do hope that the victim institutes a civil claim for damages, damages in the form of pain and suffering, loss of earnings and medical treatment.

    Sending the perpetrator to jail is not enough.

    He deserves to pay. I stand ready to assist Gift legally, for free.”

    NO COMMENT HAS BEEN GIVEN BY MR. UYAPONDAD ALL THE HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYERS SHOULD BE GIVING GIFTS LAWYER FULL SUPPORT

  31. cheerful 2014/01/29

    BOTSWANA TELL THE WORLD WHY YOU ARE DILLYDALLYING AND LAZYING ABOUT AND BEING TOO LAID BACK ABOUT BRINGING THE MAN TO TRIAL WHO SHOT GIFT AND WAS THE CAUSE OF HIM LOSING BOTH OF HIS ARMS

    THE MAN EVEN WANTED TO BE EXCUSED FROM JAIL USING THE EXCUSE THAT HE HAD A SICK MOTHER

    Cheerful, I understand what you are saying from empathy and just doing good principles! I agree that our country should consider looking after this man! However, there are principles at the heart of all this affair. This man broke our immigration laws and stayed for ten years breaking those laws, including earning a living illegally here! No country would readily reward a person for breaking laws just because he got injured, for that matter while breaking those rules! Botswana paid all his medical bills! It’s time for Zim to take over and look after him! When you find someone has broken into your house, you pull a chair and say mate let’s have some tea! You wanner throw them out! Anyway, let’s hope Bots does the humane thing and look after him! I wouldn’t fault Bots if they didn’t though! I would understand!

    Khunou MUST pay for maintenance until…. aa duelele ko court hela jaaka a ngwana yoo supportiwang. Period!!! O dirile tiro hela ee sisimosang mmele.

    Cheerful is right, our country have to look after this guy despite the fact that he stayed here illegally.

  35. Eish!waitse dilo tsa batho ke mathata!My brother God be with you throught out all this ,everyone understand the kind of life posed by the Zimbabwean nation,so do they risk you by taking you back there.You might be ilegally here ,but you dont deserve all this.I am just waiting with desperacy to hearthat the perpetrator walks free tomorrow,this country of ours is sick!

    MSGE BOTSWANA IS SENDING TO THE WORLD IS THAT IT IS PROTECTING THE PERSON WHO SHOT AT GIFT WHICH IS THE CRIMINAL) RATHER THAN THE VICTIM WHO IS GIFT

  38. cheerful 2014/01/30

    GIFTS LIFE HAS BEEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN BY THE MAN WHO SHOT HIM HE NOW HAS A DISABILITY HAVING LOST BOTH HIS ARMS.

    HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE TAUGHT HOW TO LIVE WITHOUT BOTH HIS ARMS AND NOT JUST THROWN INTO THE DEEP END

    IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS THE ONE THAT WENT OUT TO WORK TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE FOR HIS FAMILY BOTSWANA MUST REALISE THAT HE HAS A SON THAT HE CAN NO LONGER GIVE HIM A HUG BECAUSE HE HAS NO ARMS JUST LIKE ANY PARENT WOULD DO TO THEIR CHILD (AMONG OTHER THINGS )BECAUSE OF THAT WICKED MAN

    “Ncube’s lawyer Enoch Mazonde said although he understands that his client was still an illegal migrant, he does not see why that was speeding his deportation.”
    TELL THE WORLD BOTSWANA FROM WHAT CAN MAKE OF THIS THAT GIFTS LAWYER HAS NOT BEEN INFORMED OF HIS SPEEDY REMOVAL DESPITE THE CASE OF HIS BRUTAL EMPLOYER WHO SHOULD BE COMPENSATING GIFT HAS NOT BEEN HEARD INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:

    “The Botswana Government’s move to deport Gift Ncube has apparently come as a shock to the Zimbabwe Embassy despite reports that the two countries were in ‘high level’ talks to regularise his travel documents.”
    AND THIS IS WHEN THE MEDIA WAS TOLD THAT THEY COULD HAVE NO ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION WHEN THEY ARE THE ONES WHO PUBLISHED GIFTS STORY WHEN HIS BRUTAL EMPLOYER SHOT HIM AS ONE WAY OF ASSISTING HIM. THE WORLD BOTSWANA THE TRUTH WHY THE MEDIA COULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION

  41. cheerful 2014/02/01

    Theres a probability that someone has been paid UNDER THE COUNTER to ensure that Gift Ncube does not attend the Trial OF HIS BRUTAL EMPLOYER WHO MADE HIM LOSE BOTH HSI ARMS AND MAKE THE HIM WALK OUT A FREE MAN. SOMEONE IS TRYING TO WASH THEIR HANDS OFF THIS CASE

  42. cheerful 2014/02/01

    IF THRE IS DISCONTENT THAT BOTSWANA PAID THE MEDICAL BILLS FOR GIFT – SIMPLE PASS THE BILLS ON TO THE MAN WHO SHOT GIFT FOUR SOLID TIMES LOSING BOTH HIS ARMS TO REIMBURSE THE STATE -LAME EXCUSE

  47. Chris M 2014/02/04

    Cheerful, nobody is complaining about this man’s medical bills being paid by tax payer! It was the right thing to do. The man who shot him is still in custody and will stand trial and this injured guy will be the prime witness. I don’t think sending him back to his country is an attempt to deny him justice! Everyone should get the message – respect laws of all nations and Botswana is no exception! Botswana as a country has nothing to do with his injuries and they had no idea he was in the country all these years! Whether he stays out of compassion or he goes doesn’t matter for me. He should still be there at trial, hopefully with legal travel documents! Insisting on what is right is not lack of care!

  48. cheerful 2014/02/05

    The rightful person who should be footing the medical bill is the MAN WHO SHOT GIFT FOUR TIMES BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO PAY HIM FOR DOING AN HONEST DAYS WORK FOR GOODNESS SAKE
    WHY HAS THE MAN NOT BEING BROUGHT BEFORE THE COURTS BEFORE DEPORTING GIFT??? EVERYONE CAN SEE THAT THIS IS NOT RIGHT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
    there was A POINT WHERE HE WAS USING THE EXCUSE THAT HE WANTS TO GO BACK TO HIS SICK MOTHER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD WHY IS THERE A DELAY IN SEEING JUSTIC FOR GIFT??? WHY WHY WHY???

  49. cheerful 2014/02/05

    THAT BRUTAL MAN MUST TAKE CARE OF GIFT CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT HE CANNOT EVEN WASH OR FEED HIMSELF HIS PARTNER NOW MUST BE HIS FULLTIME CARER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD WHY HAS THERE BEEN A DELAY IN THE TRIAL WHY WHY WHY???
