It is indeed reassuring to learn from the DIS presentations that their mandate also covers surveillance on economic threats as well as snooping of unscrupulous potential investors.

To learn that the DIS were the first on the ball regarding the unreliability of the company that was hired to construct the P11 billion Morupule B power station is interesting indeed. But to also learn that when the Ministry of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources or the Botswana Power Corporation (BPC) were informed of the dangers posed by the contractor even before he started work but chose to dismiss or ignore the advice of the DIS is shocking.
