The Monitor :: Ex-convict lands plum post at OP








It has been two months now since Segaetsho Garekwe, convicted 24 years ago for stealing P49,000 from the party, started work as the Senior Private Secretary in the office of former President Festus Mogae, a position previously held by Bapasi Mphusu.

Government spokesman Dr Jeff Ramsay yesterday confirmed that Garekwe is the new private secretary for former President Mogae but would not be drawn into saying whether the ex-convict has been cleared by the President or Permanent Secretary to the President Eric Molale, as it is a legal requirement, to assume any post in the public service.

Garekwe, who served shortly as the public relations manager for the BDP in 2010, made headlines in 2011 after he was controversially offered the post of legal adviser at the Francistown City Council, a move that attracted protests from the opposition who felt that the BDP activist was being merely done a favour by his Party in spite of his criminal record.
