Kgosi PIC: PHATSIMO KAPENG

In April 2018 Colonel Isaac Kgosi, the founding spy chief of the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) was fired from his position by President Mokgweetsi Masisi and since then there has never been peace between the spy unit and its former spymaster.

The back and forth altercations between the parties and its effects have been talked about the most and recently Jystice Zein Kebonang of the Gaborone High Court weighed in on how the impasse has affected the running of many things in the country. Justice Kebonang said with no end to the disagreements, it has weighed down on the rule of law and the sanctity of many institutions. Perfectly describing the relationship between the parties in a recent ruling, Justice Kebonang said it was one of mutual dislike and mistrust between a spy agency and its former spymaster, which has negatively affected the smooth functioning of different agencies in the web of government.

“The dislike and mistrust between the two has negatively affected the smooth functioning in the web of government. Every facet of public and private life has felt the impasse,” he said. Justice Kebonang this week explained that the fallout permeated every layer of government and many careers and lives have been unfairly destroyed as a result.
