The president of the Republic of Botswana Seretse Khama Ian Khama Aka SKI is one man who never thinks twice about speaking his mind. He is all about power and confrontation.
In his short stay as the president he has already jabbed at the likes of Robert Mugabe, Omar El Bashir and Julius Malema. He even went to tell Confederation of African Football (CAF) led by Issa Hayatou that they have lost their mind. How dare they suspend Togo when the entire team was nearly massacred?
Hayatou and his men might have heard the stern warning and quickly reversed their decision.
Not satisfied Khama is now taking war to America. In his three-day state visit to Cuba, he told Castro’s people not to fret over the USA sanctions.
“When I get to Botswana I ask the Americans to lift the sanctions,” Khama was heard on Botswana television.
The standoff between USA and Cuba is legendary and how ISK intends to end the legend is intriguing. Imagine him picking up the phone and calling US President Barrack Obama.
“Yo B. Wazzup man. Look here lil’ bro I just arrived from Cuba, you gotta go there man; them peeps are down. I had a chat with Ol’ Big Castro, n the dude is down man. C’mon B, just lift the damn sanctions man, we brothers n we don’t get down like that!”
FEEL IT,I’M DOWN
It is here, and people are beginning to do the craziest things you can ever imagine. Football supporters are some of the most passionate sports lovers you would ever see. From body paintings, masks, song and never ending drinking sprees, soccer lovers will do it all.
Last Friday, the GICC hosted the world cup opening match celebration, co-sponsored by Mascom, FNB and Multi-Choice and invited guests came in droves. The trendy conference hall was turned into a temporary football pitch as patrons blew their Vuvuzelas to cheer on Bafana Bafana. Drinks were offered!
Some people took it way too far, chairs were falling and alcohol spilt on the carpet, the behaviour usually displayed at the national stadium. Just when Yours Truly thought he had had enough the above lady came crushing down. Of course I had to take a shot just to show you that I’m no liar.
ANGELS OF DOOM
They say politics is a dirty game, where only the dirtiest survive. Recent Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) squabbles that led to the formation of Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) is seen by many as a historic moment that will show who the real politicians are.
BMD stole BDP’s thunder and has been making front-page news for the entire month, while the ruling party was shredded to pieces.
However, Shaya has learnt that the big horse is not about to give up just yet.
When the new party is celebrating the defections of BDP supporters and bragging that more MPs will follow suit, the BDP leadership is allegedly cooking up a master-strategy that will send BMD to the dogs.
Yours truly was reliable informed that, there are a chosen BDP MPs who were asked to stage defections. The said MPs will tell the nation that they have joined the new party, and will be welcomed with hugs by the new movement.
The idea is to make BMD think they have the numbers while the opposite is the truth. The angels of doom have been deployed, who are they?
DOWN BUT NOT OUT
Former talented Culture Spears dancer Jelina Mokgwatlheng is far from being finished. The dancer, currently based in Molepolole, said she is still recovering from some unspecified illness and when the time is right she will make a come back.
“Currently I’m just in Molepolole recuperating and when I’m fit enough I will come back to the music industry,” she said.
Mokgwatlheng, however, ruled out any chance of her re-joining her former top selling group.
“I’m not going back to Culture Spears,” she said.
