Why would Motswaledi become a target for intelligence operatives?

The final forensic and pathological reports on Motswaledi’s death are still eagerly awaited by the nation. And from my instalment in last week’s paper, I had made some insinuations and an extrapolation that if this fellow was killed, then intelligence would surely have a hand in the whole exercise. Of course one has to tread very carefully when we disburse any information until science tells us exactly what happened.

The nation and the rest of the sub-continent of SADC still pin their hopes on this science to inform us. And scientific results will not lie as long as they are done in a scientific manner and are not tampered with. Indeed there is a possibility of tampering because it seems the stakes are high on this particular issue.

And why would I make such a dangerous extrapolation on the death of this political leader? This question would only be answered by several factors that existed and continue to exist on the political scene nationwide. Motswaledi was a key figure in the Umbrella Project. He had taken a long sabbatical from his job at the University of Botswana to pursue his political ambitions and to make sure that the Umbrella Project by all intents and purposes becomes successful. The fact that the fellow was not married helped him dedicate much of his time to the project without any domestic entanglements.
