Has Construction is suing the Botswana Confederation of Commerce, Industry and Manpower (BOCCIM) after President Ian Khama allegedly directed that the former be denied payment of close to P126,000 for services it provided to the private sector body.

BOCCIM allegedly approached Has Construction to supply eight loads of river sand to the BOCCIM Trade Fair grounds on 21 May 2013. The job was well paid for in two days.  On 23 May 2013, Has Construction was again requested to spray water on the path that cars and customers were to use at the grounds at different times throughout the day.

Has Construction alleges that when notified about the charge for the service and requested for a signed job order, BOCCIM convinced them to carry on with the work saying the job order document would be signed later.
