The Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) Youth League president Phenyo Segokgo says President Ian Khama had a deep-rooted hatred for the late UDC secretary general Gomolemo Motswaledi and the principles he stood for.

When briefing the media last Friday, Segokgo said whilst Motswaledi was at the BDP, he sought to restore sanity and the rule of law and democracy in the Khama-led BDP, a move which saw him being unceremoniously expelled from the party two months before the 2009 general elections.

“Our pain over the demise of our leader evokes questions of trust over the security organs of our country as presently run under the regime of the BDP. As doubt and confusion permeates our political air, we observe with disdain the ‘business-as-usual’ and cavalier approach that the present regime often affords the problems that are besieging the country, the problems which Cde Motswaledi fought for in his short but successful political career. Sir G (as Motswaledi was affectionately called) fought against the rule of a man, the rule by fear that President Ian Khama is synonymous with. His death, two months to the decisive 2014 general elections, cannot be treated as an isolated and unsuspicious act of nature taking it’s course.
