Rammidi wa tsamaya today, Rammidi wa replaciwa kamoso. Ramadeluka wa tsamaya, ngwaga swaa tii go sena replacement. Tota gatwe gare go tsene eng mo Botswana? Mme legale ba bone, DCEC e tla e ba setse morago


A ko le mphitise ha lona batho ba transparency and good governance: Vincent Seretse- assistant minister of trade and industry. Just out of curiosity, Rose Seretse: Director DCEC Ndelu Seretse: MP, serowe North and former minister of defence and security, Tebelelo Seretse: Ambassador to USA. Doreen Khama: Manager at De Beers. Are these people all related to each other and HE. Seretse Khama Ian Khama and why are they all up there? And why are we still having an acting minister in the post Ndelu resigned from. Is he the next VP in waiting? So how are we ever going… Read more »


waitse motho yo wa afro otletse matlakala ele gore bone batho bao o ya go ba duela ka eng while are madi ga ayo bt legale re ta reng ka le bone ke malope ba bata go oketsa corruption entseng e le teng


@Rarefri, though i do not rule out nepotism, the people you mentioned are people of great experience and high intellect who i believe qualify in their various appointments. The Ndelu issue will haunt the president for a very long time just like the precedent he set with Guma Moyo & Kwelagobe. Now he has no way out, he has to follow this principle, now watch as the pressure mount on Matambo to step down. Apparently the president is being advised and in most cases he goes against the advice to his own detriment, as it has now proved most of… Read more »


@Ty_M, i wish there was a “like” button

Interesting theory Ty_M! Why is Matambo, after being drafted by the president into politics when he was just out there minding his own business, now suddenly targeted if he wont be brought down by the consequences of his alleged misdemeanor? Tribalists!? Is what is going on in our politics different from what goes on out there? Jostling for power is inherent in politics even in opposition camps! Conspiracy theories abound and will continue! What matters to some us is what is done for our fellow citizens by that leadership! Is there any leader who will not be docked by conspiracy… Read more »

Ba leseng ba tsene, ba tlaa tswa in no time.


The very same people have been recycling themselves since independence, my question is will they ever give other people chance in those ministries/positions who really have credential, e.g today you have X as minister of agriculture, following year you have same X again as minister of finance don’t they get tired??


@Lord Aint’t that the truth! Politics is just another boys’ club. They would never put anybody in there who is just good at his work and cares about the country. This trend has always been prevalent and I don’t see Iam Khama escaping it. He is bringing in his friends and relatives, some og whom failed where they were before and they are brought in the cabinet to fulfill a past promise. Even in the opposition, if they were to win elections, we would be naive to imagine that they would field ministers based on their excellence. No. It will… Read more »
