Gaborone North MP Robert Masitara is today set to appear before the disciplinary committee of the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) in connection with utterances he made in Parliament about the Vice President Ponatshego Kedikilwe, during his contribution to the budget speech.

Masitara was not available on his mobile phone but talk was rife in Parliament on Friday with some MPs expressing shock that a fellow MP could be punished by his party for the comments he made in the House on national issues.

The Monitor has learnt that Masitara’s ‘offence’ was suggesting that the Vice President should account to Parliament on why the P6 billion Morupule B continues to experience surmountable problems, eating more hundreds of millions of Pula in the process. Masitara had also said the current minister responsible for Morupule B, should not be apportioned the blame for the troubles at Morupule, because, according to Masitara, Kitso Mokaila inherited the mess. Masitara also suggested that Kedikilwe, formerly the minister responsible for Morupule B among others, should account for his actions and possibly face prosecution.
