Molale comes to parliament with missiles on the ready

Truth be told, Molale has been brought to Parliament as a package of reward for steering the government establishment in line with the wishes of the executive. In fact for the length of years he remained as Permanent Secretary to the President, he was the overall supervisor of the entire civil service. Besides that, he also has been a defacto cabinet member and not just playing the advisory role. The decisions that have been made by government and in particular, cabinet have had a given bearing because Molale had a say in it. He gave counsel to the President.
