Cllr on self- imposed exile


Naledi North councillor Oarabile Motlaleng’s whereabouts are not known after he skipped the country for “fear” of his life.

Lawyer Martin Dingake confirmed to Mmegi that Motlaleng, a member of the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) left the country beginning of last month. Dingake said his client, who before the October general elections was reportedly kidnapped, brutally assaulted and left for dead outside his house in Naledi, is now safe outside the country.

While initial rumours were that the councillor, who is the chairperson of the audit committee in the Gaborone City Council, had escaped to China, Mmegi is reliably informed that he is in the United States of America.
