Almost two years since the infamous shooting of 10 robbery suspects at Phase 2 location in Gaborone, the police are now left to pay maintenance costs for the house where the incident took place. According to recently released Government Gazette the police will now have to bear the costs of maintaining the house

. The tender No DS/POL 073/2023-2024/Works calls on contractors to, “for the maintenance of a residential plot house Plot number18515, Phase 2, Gaborone. The works contract will include the maintenance of a residential house at Gaborone, Phase 2.” According to an insider, the police are left with paying for the ‘mess’ which they believe was created by their sister law enforcement organisation, the Directorate on Intelligence and Security (DIS).

The police are currently in a tug of war with the DIS over the shooting. According to a leaked police report, the police claim that they had things under control until the DIS came and ‘bullied’ them and took over the crime scene. A leaked report previously published by Mmegi paints a picture of the police and the DIS both failing to take responsibility for the shooting. In the report, the police point fingers at a second team entirely made up of the DIS officers who forcibly took over the scene from them.
