The same Mmegi report goes on to falsely allege that “Vlatacom was awarded a closed contract of over P 500 million in 2010 to supply the Botswana government with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) systems.”

The plain fact of the matter is that no contract for PKI systems has, heretofore, been awarded to Vlatacom or for that matter any other company. It is therefore also not true that P500 million, or indeed any other amount, has been paid toward such a contract.
