In an interesting turf war, the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) sleuths, this afternoon raided the office of the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC) head Tymon Katlholo in his absence. Katlholo is out of the country in Kigali, Rwanda on duty.
Office of one DCEC staff officers was also sealed off as part of the investigations.
Mmegi has gathered that the raid is in relation to the ongoing investigations on missing ‘arms of war’.
Insiders have revealed to Mmegi that, “at the centre of the investigations are files opened by the DCEC investigators against former president Ian Khama who is facing charges of unlawful possession of firearms and former DIS director general, Isaac Kgosi.”
Katlholo is facing allegations that he has killed all efforts by his Investigators to probe the duo of Khama and Kgosi. The DCEC DG further faces allegations that he has refused to act on anything that implicates the duo of Khama and Kgosi.”
DIS spokesperson, Edward Robert said: "Yes, I can confirm.... The DIS sealed off the office of the Director General of the DCEC and that of the staff officer." He explained that this is in relation to the ongoing investigations on possible breach to national security.
“I am not in a position to give details on the matter so I cannot risk compromising the integrity of the investigations. This is a sensitive matter and we will do everything possible to ensure that the investigations are guided by the law,” added the DIS spokesperson.
Speaking to the DCEC spokesperson, Lentswe Motshoganetsi, he was not at liberty to shed light on the latest developments at the DCEC. ‘I am hamstrung to comment on this matter, rather, I will refer you to the DIS to comment on the matter,” was all he could muster.
