According to a leaked criminal docket on the top spy, Magosi’s acts are alleged to be sometimes “detrimental to the government of Botswana.”

According to the report, Magosi had alleged that China Jiangsu International (CJI) was a national security threat and that because of Magosi’s “blunder and total disregard for the law and laid down procedures”, the Government of Botswana and by extension, Batswana’s taxes had to pay the price.
