After all the men (and few women) who do the work under the umbrella of the intelligence community, or more specifically the Military Intelligence arm of the Botswana Defence Force, the Directorate of Intelligence and Security belong to a hallowed few who would like to see themselves as the blue-eyed boys of the system. Under the Ian Khama government indeed they are, as the President himself proved with the John Kalafatis murderers.
