BCPYL Rubbishes Dr Khama’s 2015 Sona

Not Amused: BCPYL criticise SONA

As expected, HE Lt Gen Dr Ian Khama Seretse Khama, delivered a not so inspiring State of the Nation Address (SONA) on November 9, 2015. The speech seemed to be a continuation of new empty promises as before, safe for a trending phrase of Economic Stimulus Package (ESP).

It must be noted also that, HE has shown a slight veer off, on his way of presenting the never fulfilled promises. He has this time around, resorted to putting open-ended promises with no time-frame attached, something not very well his style of giving two weeks ultimatums. This new approach is nothing less than  an abdication of accountability tactic by the Head of State. However, this does not come as a surprise as he seemingly has had enough of rhetoric questions about his previous unachieved promises.

The SONA 2015, is threadbare to say the least. There is absolutely no reference to the contents of the previous intents. The Nation remains in the dark with regards to the planned proposals, whether they materialised or not, achieved intended purposes or not, what measures are in place or to be put in place to resurrect any of the negative scenarios. E.g the programmes that have been rolled out before, Constituency Tournament, allowances for Premier League and First division players, Internship, Tirelo Sechaba, GVS  etc. These do not appear on HE`s SONA. The Citizenry remains in the dark with regard to the value for their money.
