Court reasserts Marenga, Karabo


Gaborone High Court Judge Zein Kebonang yesterday deflated challengers, Kaboyaone Rash Sedimo and Philemone Zibane, who wanted to be recognised as general secretary and deputy general secretary at Botswana Public Employees Union (BOPEU).

Justice Kebonang ruled in favour of Topias Marenga and Kethapeleng Karabo, who were recently restored to their posts by several high court judgements including the Court of Appeal.

It was Justice Kebonang whose interim orders in favor of the Sedimo and Zibane faction during the fight for control of the Standard chartered Bank account that seemed to create two centres of power. The decision allowed Sedimo and company to transact for BOPEU using the Standard Chartered Bank account. The same judge yesterday took a completely different view and decided that the matter of who is in control of BOPEU had long been concluded by various high courts judgements and the Court of Appeal and therefore, remains final.
