Mmegi Online :: Masisi is a criminal suspect - Boko








Sharing his thoughts on the National Petroleum Fund (NPF) saga and Masisi’s corruption crusade exclusively with Mmegi Boko wrote that, “I deal here, en passant, with the fact that in the course of the criminal case it was alleged that President Masisi benefitted from several sources in his campaign to become the chairperson of his party”.

Boko who also doubles as Botswana National Front (BNF) president said it appears Masisi received several million pula through a number of operatives, many of whom are ready and willing to testify, should a serious investigation occur. “He funded his ‘Camp Dubai’ mainly from NPF money.  It has also been suggested that President Masisi used at least three law firms to receive and disburse these funds. President Masisi becomes, without any doubt, a criminal suspect,” Boko said.  He said while on the subject of receipt of funds for ‘Camp Dubai’ Masisi is alleged to also have received funds from Botswana Public Officers Pension Fund (BPOPF) monies through the medium of Capital Management Botswana (CMB), which was entrusted with P450 million by BPOPF.  “It is important here to highlight that CMB is owned 75% by Capital Management Africa (CMA) and one Rapula Okaile holds 25% of the shares of CMB. The network also covers Fleming Asset Management (Fleming) in which CMA holds 75% shares while 25% was held by a known political figure.”

Boko explained that he mentioned these facts not to cast aspersions on anybody save to accept that all political figures must submit to an honest and serious probe, the better to establish their honesty and integrity in relation to the issues they raise.  “I differed on the motion and took the radical view that President Masisi was disqualified from appointing any Judicial Commission into the NPF saga because

he was directly implicated in the embezzlement of funds from it. 

“The Commissions of Inquiry Act, under which he would appoint the commission gave him wide powers to determine the terms of reference of the commission, select and appoint the commissioners; he was entitled to decide if the commission sat in public or in secret, and whether at the end its report would be made public or for the President’s eyes only.  The President could also, at any stage during the commission’s proceedings, dissolve the commission and terminate its activities.” He further said he developed his proposition on Masisi in the motion of no confidence that he tabled on the occasion of the completion of his first 100 days in office. 

He mentioned that he drew so much fire from the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) as well as from some of his own folk in the opposition ranks.   “As I said in my address to the Rakops conference of the Botswana National Front (BNF), those twerking for President Masisi were highly offended by the motion of no confidence.

They have now begun to label me a sympathiser of former President Ian Khama.”

He said their cumulative and connected misunderstandings cannot cloak and conceal the fact that as matters stand, in the political chess game that is playing out he is counting the moves towards calling a devastating check mate on the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) and all who place blind and implicit faith in it.

“I have said before and I say it again: let this regime charge Isaac Kgosi, so all their skeletons come tumbling down!  I hold all the aces! The Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) is poised to shock its detractors in the most stunning fashion,” he said, a he rested his case.
