HARDHITTING: Leach Tlhomelang

Former nominated Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) councillor, Leach Tlhomelang has come out guns blazing describing former President Ian Khama as the most useless president this country has ever had.

Speaking at a political rally over the weekend to launch the BDP council ward candidate for Ranaka village, Mothibedi Mothibedi and BDP parliamentary hopeful Thapelo Letsholo, Tlhomelang who was the guest speaker lamented that Khama has got nothing to show for the 20 years he was in political office. He told the rally that Khama was a vice president for a decade and president for another 10 years but there is nothing concrete that he has achieved for the country. “Masisi has been in office for only one year, but has delivered far more than what Khama did in 20 years,” he said.

Tlhomelang said that he supports President Masisi whole heartedly because unlike former president Khama, in the short time he has been in office he has increased salaries for civil servants, lifted the hunting ban and he is doing a lot to make sure that young people are active in the economy. He said he is not bothered by people who are against President Masisi’s initiatives more especially those who oppose the hunting ban. He said those people’s motives are to see Botswana as a gigantic animal zoo.

Tlhomelang accused Khama of confusing some people with serving them with soup and that makes them believe he is a good leader. He charged that “Maybe there is something mysterious in this soup that initiates people and makes them to think improperly, how can people not see that Khama is a useless leader who achieved nothing in 20 years?” he charged.

Tlhomelang pleaded with Ranaka residents who attended the rally to vote for Letsholo and the BDP council candidate. He described Letsholo as a capable leader who has worked for Kgalagadi Breweries and an astute businessman and has no doubt he will represent Kanye North well. Although he was disappointed to lose primary elections to Letsholo after some reflection he is convinced that voters made a good decision to elect Letsholo over him because he feels he might be too old for the task.

Tlhomelang said, “Nowadays I get easily tired and maybe if I was voted ahead of Letsholo I could probably have spent most of my time in parliament sleeping, so it is good that we have a young person like Letsholo who still has a lot of energy.” On the council candidate Tlhomelang pleaded with people to vote for BDP council candidate Mothibedi because he is a capable person who even led a regiment to Mozambique while a soldier, during the BDF deployment on a peace mission. After retirement Mothibedi served as VDC chairman for Ranaka village. The political rally was graced by Assistant Minister of Trade and Industry, Karabo Gare.
