Diamond giant, Debswana says it is considering its next move after the High Court ruled that it should pay a local company Infotrac P110million for backdoor dealings in 2018 that involved lobbying powerful personalities who included the then Vice President, Mokgweetsi Masisi and others in favor of the appointment of a new managing director.

Infotrac through its managing director Mompoloki Motshidi claimed that it was owed for various deep undercover services provided to Debswana which included the alleged spying on the union and lobbying the likes of the late Linah Mohohlo and ex spy chief Isaac Kgosi to ensure that the late Albert Milton was appointed the Debswana managing director.

The judge President of the High Court Abednigo Tafa yesterday ruled in favour of the spy company in a judgment that embarrassed Debswana.
