Khama must come back and face the law- BDP on Khama warrant of arrest


The Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) has hit back against Former President Ian Khama who has accused the BDP and President Mokgweetsi Masisi of using state organs to fight political battles. The BDP says Khama must come back to prove his innocence.

Khama in an interview with MmegiOnline ealier this week said that his warrant is only because he is a threat to the BDP and Masisi’s chances of getting re-elected. “This has nothing to do with anything illegal I have done because I never have . It is only about one thing . And that is to remove me from being a threat to masisi and his re-election," Khama told this publication then.

Now the BDP has strong words against their former leader too. BDP spokesperson, Kagelelo Banks Kentse, responded: “It is our view that the rule of law must be respected and that no one is above the law. If the man is innocent then he must proof his innocence in court. It cannot be business as usual when senior members of society specifically a former president does not respect the courts, he has actually presided over. We only have one judiciary and it remains our hope for a just system.”
