The police must arrest Facebook abusers

31-07-2015 - The Linguist Chair

Facebook is a popular social network with broad international appeal. It has become an important platform for dialogue amongst members of communities and between individuals with similar interests. Businesses, governments, associations and individuals use Facebook to advance their different interests. It has taken government a while to catch up with Facebook. In my judgment government approaches Facebook...


 

“It’s the economy, stupid”

31-07-2015 - Spencer Mogapi

As a country our economy is in dire straits. The economy is by far the biggest and scariest political question that we should be discussing as a country. And we are not even talking about it. And from the look of things, it will get worse before it gets any better. If media reports are anything to go by, there are massive retrenchments looming, including from the public service, especially the state...


 

It is not yet uhuru for Masisi

31-07-2015 - Sonny Serite

While he may still be popping champagne bottles and taking more selfies following his victory at the recent Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) elective congress in Mmadinare, Vice President Mokgweetsi Masisi needs to be reminded that his victory may afterall not guarantee his ascendance to the party presidency. In all honesty, Masisi didn’t win the BDP Chairmanship on account of being the fairest of them...


 

Failure of parentage is the reason behind moral decay

31-07-2015 - Don-Martin Whande

Nowadays the issue of public morality is barely ever given the attention it deserves in public discourse because of the global decline of moral values. We cannot run away from the fact that we now live in a world where the corrupting influence of social media is promoting degenerate cultures via the internet and also beaming into our homes. Now, what was once regarded as taboo in our conservative society...


 

BCL perennial accidents have become a blight on the nation’s collective psyche and conscience

31-07-2015 - The Telegraph Commentary

Recurrent accidents all of them resulting in the loss of life at the BCL Mine in Selibe Phikwe are harming the reputation of Botswana as a mining country with some of the world’s safest mines.

Eric Molale’s hunger for power gets the better of Ian Khama’s judgement

26-07-2015 - The Watchdog

It’s difficult to decide whether to laugh with Eric Molale, as when he rabidly lashes at the media for disrupting his celebrations after his questionable victory at the ruling party primaries, or simply to laugh at him as when he insanely claims he is of a royal lineage more senior than Kgosi Lotlaamoreng of Barolong. Either way, even by the new BDP standards, the man is a decidedly hilarious joke....


 

Straight Talk with Guma

26-07-2015 - Batlhalefi Leagajang

Dear Guma I would have loved to address you as Honourable followed by your surname but I find it hard because I don’t know who really you are. While still practicing as a journalist I noted the confusion around your surname and I asked to clarify this and you said you are Samson Moyo Guma. However, this confusion has continued and you have somehow perpetrated it because contrary to what you told me,...

Sir Marquette Joni Masire at 90: A trip down memory lane

26-07-2015 - Thabo Seleke

Those who went to the University of Botswana during President Masire’s era as the President of the Republic of Botswana as well as the Chancellor of the University can testify that those were the rosy times. It was during that time that being a university student was fun and many of us then as students even used to slide on margarine at the student refectory. Some even went to the extent of molding...


 

Skills mismatch is a big lie peddled by people who are running away from responsibility

26-07-2015 - Kenneth Dipholo

Botswana has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world, ranging between 20% and 30%. This implies that almost half of Botswana’s economically active population is unemployed posing social and political risk such as high levels of crime, political instability, etc. To a larger extent, a nation’s prosperity is dependent on the number of citizens in paid work. Thus, employment creation provides...
