KUMAKWANE: Police were called in yesterday afternoon as the deputy sheriff and Citizen Entrepreneurial Development Agency (CEDA) officers raided the well-known Iketlo Lodge and attached all equipment.

Information uncovered by a Mmegi newscrew on site indicates that CEDA auctioned the lodge, which was developed with the agency’s funds, in August. The Kumakwane landmark was bought by one Lorraine Ferguson for over P3 million, but the new owner had never been granted access to her new asset due to a dispute with the old owner.

Yesterday morning, Ferguson together with CEDA officials forced themselves inside the lodge and unlocked all the rooms in order to seize all movable assets.  The locks were then changed so that Ferguson would have exclusive access to the lodge.
