Villagers want their councillor out

FRANCISTOWN: Mabesekwa villagers want their village councillor Lone Letamo out, accusing him of poor service delivery. Thatayamodimo Kebahitile, co-ordinator of the group seeking to oust the civic leader, said that residents had resolved to topple Letamo over his apparent negligence of their village.

Kebahitile said he (Letamo) is failing to bring services to the people and it’s time he steps down. “We have decided to write a petition to the District Commissioner (DC) Khumo Keeng, the Tonota Sub-District council secretary Terrence Ntalabgwe and to the Member of Parliament Thapelo Olopeng’s office to raise the concern because Letamo is failing the people of Mabesekwa,” said Kebahitile.

He said that the idea is for the above leadership to summon Letamo to the village kgotla so that he can explain his intentions towards them and their village. Kebahitile accused Letamo of neglecting the people of Mabesekwa village alleging that ever since they voted him into power, they have never seen him in their village.
