Dipate wanted to be furnished with police evidence and statements of a man, alleged to be a member of the Botswana Democratic Party, who was reportedly caught with voter cards belonging to different people on the day of the election.  “Why should I continue with the matter if police are refusing to provide us with evidence,” he said.

“Our client would like to have a report on the circumstances referred to above soonest.

“Kindly, but urgently, furnish us with a report, including all statements and other material in your possession to date, on or before Wednesday, 5 November 2014 to enable our client to consider his legal options in terms of Electoral Act,” the letter stated.

However, writing on behalf of the station commander, one Mosireletsi Phologo said police could not provide any documentation, as the case was ongoing. He however did confirm the incident and its facts.  Meanwhile, the Independent Electoral Commission says it is yet to receive any summons in connection to appeals from the election. The IEC is cited as a respondent should the cases reach court.
