'Botate' Weeps In Parliament


Member of Parliament (MP) for Tonota, Pono Moatlhodi who is popularly known as ‘Botate’, never ceases to amaze.

Moatlhodi, famous for rolling on the ground at political rallies, on Friday pulled another stunt in Parliament when he burst into tears stating that government has neglected the people of Nata/Gweta who were affected by floods in 2017.

“Puso e tshameka ka batho ba Gweta. Re bua ka Batswana eseng batho ba Zimbabwe kana batho ba Malawi.

Their situation hurts,” Moatlhodi said as he sobbed in tears.
