*Matambo disowns OP minister

There was drama in Parliament yesterday when Francistown West MP Tshelang Masisi played a starring role in helping legislators to force his brother, the Minister of Presidential Affairs and Public Administration, Mokgweetsi Masisi to eat humble pie. At one time, the Speaker, Margaret Nasha had to shout at an excited Tshelang to sit down after he urged MPs to bulldoze an attempt by his brother to explain why the Office of the President (OP) should be given P195 million to acquire more office space. "There are no bulldozers in the House," Nasha told Tshelang.

Lobatse MP Nehemiah Modubule joined the fray against the minister arguing that his presentation is the same as the previous one rejected by MPs. "The minister changed the figures slightly, other than those to do with the funds," he stated. Modubule said he "smelt a rat" and that he was afraid the minister had already paid money and only wanted Parliament to rectify his mistake.He said the minister should have made an undertaking to reduce the amount. He argued that initially the minister was not clear on what he wanted to do with the P195 million and "now comes today and talk of office space at Orapa House".
