Tutume council leaders forego 'expensive' mayoral chains


FRANCISTOWN: Tutume District Council chairperson Thatayaone Kehitile and his deputy Tabona Masole have decided against purchasing expensive ceremonial gold mayoral chains which form part of their civic regalia.

They have instead decided to keep the ones they have and not spend on getting new ones. Kehitile and Masole are UDC councillors. The chains are worn on official and government occasions to dignify the office of a respective council chairperson, mayor, or deputies.
