Khama to sue Mmusi over corruption allegations


Former president Ian Khama has threatened to sue the Minister of Defence and Security, Kagiso Mmusi following the minister’s damning statement labelling him (Khama) a corrupt president who milked government coffers to benefit his family.

In a statement released this week, the visibly irked minister made startling allegations against Khama, especially during his administration. Mmusi alleged that Khama left behind a demoralised BDF with poor working conditions of service, dilapidated infrastructure as well as ageing, sub-standard and unserviceable equipment procured by his twin brothers’ company, Seleka Springs.

“The flawed, unethical and corrupt practices in the procurement process were perpetrated and perpetuated by the likes of retired General Khama through the monopolising of defence tenders using countless companies in excess of 20, such as the notorious Seleka Springs from which he and his family benefited enormously and incomparable to any company dealing with the BDF at the time,” Mmusi’s statement reads in part. The Defence minister further alleged that all this was done to serve the former president’s family business interest rather than to address the security challenges of the country. In response, Khama has denied all the allegations and has threatened to sue Mmusi.
