About two senior civil servants, a senior lawyer and family members of Specially Elected Member of Parliament (MP) Unity Dow have filed supporting affidavits in her favour against the Facebook pseudo-account, France Museveni.

The affidavits filed today at the Gaborone High Court include that of suspended Directorate on Corruption And Economic Crime (DCEC) director-general, Tymon Katlholo, his former deputy Joao Salbany, and legal officer Tsholofelo Bareetsi, senior lawyer Kgalalelo Monthe, MP’s son Tumisang Dow, Cheshe Dow, and Doru Aldea.

This follows Dow’s February press conference where she spoke about the abuse she suffered at the hands of the controversial Museveni. Later on, Dow was alleged to have named Director of Research and Analysis at the Office of the President, Botho Seboko as the person behind the Museveni account. Seboko hit back with a cease and desist request and later on filed a restraining order against the Specially Elected legislator for her "unbecoming conduct of cyber-harassment, cyberstalking, and offensive electronic communication".
