Venson’s last throw of the dice: are the numbers adding up?

18 Mar 2019

It looks like it will go down to the wire, pretty much.

And probably that is a good thing.

Any attempt to settle it by negotiations was misplaced.

It will require an election to settle all the phony noises.

There is no longer any hope of a ceasefire.

In fact the war has to be fought to the end so that there is a clear winner and a clear loser.

On the 23rd February 2019, Lady Khama Community Hall in Serowe was turned into a dishonourable place to whip up emotions and plough fears of a cruel and murderous regime that ‘wants to bury all of us – me, my family and all of you’.

11 Mar 2019

The Judiciary is headed for the dock, and its moment of truth is fast approaching.
