Former Botswana President, Lieutenant General Dr Seretse Ian Khama Ian Khama has written a scathing letter to the Office of the President of Botswana.
Khama is not happy with what he calls his successor, Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi’s vindictiveness. In the letter, Khama wrote:
Your letter of 25th July 2019 refers.
It was not clear in your correspondence when you stated initially that I am relieved of the position of Champion and in the next sentence you write I am immediately relived as Champion which suggests reinstatement that contradicts the initial sentence.
However, I will then assume based on the vindictive nature of your regime that the actual intention is to remove me as Champion by the outgoing President.
If it is a spelling mistake it reflects a comedy of errors typical of yourselves (refer to the BDF Commander’s letter in this regard) as well as not addressing me correctly.
I wish to point out that I publicly resigned from being Champion of Vision 2036 on the 25th of May in Sorewo. I, therefore, do not see the point of your letter coming so late on the 25th of July and after I had already resigned.
Of course, I am aware that late coming is another poor habit in your regime. I took the step at the time as a result of another vindictive decision to remove me as Tourism Ambassador.
As you go about your childish antics of trying to relieve or relive me of all the positions I hold, allow me to bring to your attention that I am still the Chancellor of the Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
Once that has also been taken away from me I shall share with you other positions I hold for similar actions for your kind consideration.
I hope there are no spelling errors in this correspondence as I attempted to avoid any clumsy haste to frustrate.
Eneng mo go Kgosi Kgolo
