FRANCISTOWN: Justice Professor Kholisani Solo has shot back at Botswana Public Officers Employees Union (BOPEU), for indirectly demanding that he recuse himself from the case the union sponsored, following his reported statements vowing allegiance to President Ian Khama.

The applicant in the matter is Levi Holonga who used to work as an airport operations officer while Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana (CAAB) and its director of airport operations Justice Masole are cited as the first and second respondents respectively. The union is funding Holonga’s litigation, through lawyer, Otto Itumeleng, while Thabiso Olatotse is the CAAB attorney.

In September, BOPEU condemned Solo after a leaked correspondence in which he withdrew his name from a petition against the Chief Justice Maruping Dibotelo by 12 judges, while vowing his loyalty to President Ian Khama who he said “came to my rescue during a moment of despair”.
