The greatest Son there Ever was, and a people’s person; That is how Batswana will remember Sir G, a fearless, humble and selfless politician who was loved across the political divide.
Even before his death was officially announced, on Wednesday social networks were abuzz with messages of condolences and gratitude for the late politician”s life.
He died suddenly and unexpectedly in a mysterious car accident and many Batswana from various parties expressed their shock and disbelief at his passing.
Overcome by grief and shock some of the UDC leadership that rushed to inspect the accident scene that claimed Motswaledi’s life had very few words to say .
Numb with grief and visibly shaken, the otherwise vocal and eloquent UDC president Duma Boko was lost for words: “At the moment I cant say much.
I am in shock and disbelief.”
Anger and grief written all over his face, BMD Chairman Nehemiah Modubule said: “Obviously I feel very bad about this.
We are very suspicious. That is why we are going to institute our own investigations in this so called accident.”
Pastor Dumi Mmualefhe who was still struggling to come to terms with the fact that the news of his comrade”s passing came to him while he was on the phone trying to call Motswaledi, said : “ Depending on how it’s handled, Gomolemo”s death has a potential to cause a serious national crises,Obviously this an election year and there is a lot of suspicion, real or perceived.
Thorough investigations have to be done to put the people’s suspicions at rest.
His passing is a sad moment for everybody and some of us his friends are still struggling to come to terms with what happened.
Its like a dream and unfortunately its one we cant wake up from.
Meanwhile the BMD and UDC are left with the great burden of honouring their President legacy of indefatigable political will to enhance this country”s democracy and improve the ordinary people’s lives.
