Member of Parliament (MP) for Mahalapye West, David Tshere has refuted reports that he leaked a telephone conversation between him and Minister of Health, Dr Edwin Dikoloti.

In the leaked telephone audio Tshere made a call to Dikoloti telling him that residents of Mahalapye are complaining about medication shortage in clinics and hospitals. Dikoloti asked Tshere to tell the relevant officers to order medication at Central Medical Stores (CMS). He also said some officers support Tshere politically and he (Tshere) must ask them to stop sabotaging Batswana.

In an interview with Mmegi Online this morning, Tshere said it was unfortunate that their conversation got leaked. “According to my phone log, the call happened on January 8, 2023, after 12 noon in front of two other people who were complaining about medicines. By then I thought I could call the Minister so that they could hear him as well. Unfortunately, in the process, something like that came out,” said Tshere.
