THE SENIOR OFFICER & THE PREGNANT CADET
It was bound to happen, but I just did not expect it this soon! Remember the noble idea of the Botswana Defence Force of including women in the army. Sometime back Yours Truly was among the people who gathered to welcome the first batch of female soldiers who were arriving from training in Tanzania. The first batch of female cadets had arrived!
These ladies had just made history for being the first women soldiers in the country. However there were conditions. The one that I remember clearly for obvious reasons, was that the girls couldn’t date the male officers at a junior rank.
Do you know what that meant? If the girl had left for Tanzania leaving her boyfriend at the rank of private, the moment she arrives back in the country as a cadet the relationship is over.
Apparently this policy does not apply to all. The females can date males their senior but cannot go higher up into the hierarchy.
This standing order did not however stop a very senior officer in the army from impregnating his much junior subordinate. The issue is said to be a well-known secret within the BDF circle. The gentleman who controversial ascended to his position is a married man and one the highest ranking officers in the army.
OF GAYS AND CHOPPERS
Shaya aint homophobic or something. But Yours truly’s itchy ears can’t help catch and share the latest. And this one is a classic!
Apparently somewhere in Block 8 there is a place where gays occasionally meet for sex parties.
It is at this place that guys get involved in man-to-man bliss away from the conservative Batswana.
However, there is this other gay boy who has caught the attention of the gay clique. While most of them drive to the party in Corollas, Nissan Marches and Mazda 3’s, the lad always arrives at the party aboard a helicopter.
Rumour has it that the cute young man is dating a very high profile somebody. He is said to have become an envy of all gay men, due to the fact that he is dating one of the most powerful people in the country. The sugar daddy is so powerful that, should he come out into the open gays will be roaming the streets the next day. I’m talking about… er! Go to Block 8 and wait for chopper.
BULELA DIYE ORANGE!
Could this be another strategy by the newly formed Botswana Movement for Democracy of crippling the BDP? Fidelis Molao has just won Tonota North Bulela Ditswe; another term for BDP primary elections. So, should opposition fear anything. Nay, says those in the know.
Rumour within the embattled ruling BDP is should the former director of the Botswana National Youth Council win the bye-elections, he would quickly defect to BMD with the new seat.
In fact, some suggest his surprise win was a due to the dual-card carrying members of the BMD, who for strategic reasons were still holding on to the BDP membership cards so they vote for their man before finally ditching the ailing Domkrag.
Molao has dismissed such allegations but sources insist that the young politician is ready to deliver a sucker punch to the BDP.
“That is nonsense. That was a smear campaign from my opponents but it did not sell because people in this region know me. I’m BDP for life,” he said.
Molao told Shaya that all of his five BDP opponents used this BMD issue against him during their campaign.
TV MAN AND THE LOADED SUGAR MAMAS
This young boy has got it for the silver haired. He just can’t keep his hands away from old ladies. So good looking is the former TV man that another mama has fallen prey to his smooth ways. He is said to be dating a former cabinet minister old enough to be her mother.
It was not the first time that the smooth operator got down with an oldie. Before he hooked up the politician, he was romantically linked to a high-flying Banker, who was also linked to one top dog in the land.
Now similarities between the two old ladies are that they are loaded, and the young man is digging in.
