The court has ruled in favour of President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s sisters and their business associates in a legal battle that had pitted the first family against each other over a government tender.

Justice Michael Leburu of the Gaborone High Court delivered judgment on Friday ending the three-year-long court battle. In the matter, the President's nephew, Olebile Pilane, had taken his aunts and business associates to court, alleging they ousted him from their company, G&M Building Services (Proprietary) Limited.

At the heart of the matter is a government water tender, which the First Family's relatives won through their company, along with a joint bid with Tianyuan Construction (Tianyuan), for the construction of the Goodhope Sub-District Water Supply Scheme 2.2 contract for P549,699,654.70 During the trial, Pilane, who was the sole witness to take the stand had argued that he was fraudulently elbowed out of G&M Building Services (Proprietary) Limited soon after winning the tender.
