Final salute to Mmegi

Four years ago I walked into the offices of Mmegi to try my luck in publishing some of my write-ups . I struck luck in the sense that someone realised my abilities and talent and soon Douglas Tsiako signed me up to write exclusively for the paper.

This paper actually created me but the road to stardom was not easy. There were those who felt very uncomfortable in dealing with an ex-military man in the newsroom. Some reporter’s nervousness was even expressed in words. One senior reporter told me he would never allow my memory stick into his computer because I was sent by Isaac Kgosi to spy on the paper.

I understood his fears because there probably  has never been an ex-military person working for any paper. The way our national intelligence works has often made life difficult for those who once worked with any security organs. This is true everywhere. Someone I went to school with told me that they have an intelligence operative planted in their office at Ministry of Education. But the fellow had the right qualifications for the job.
