“We should give future Botswana a chance”

Dear Editor

In the past few months there has been an evident clash of ideas between the executive and the legislature.

Normally, that should not be a cause for panic because Botswana operates on a system of checks and balances.

Unfortunately, as has become characteristic of people currently in power, mainly due to them not being used to being challenged, they have suddenly come out of their cocoons and started spitting fire.
Come out they should, but spitting fire they shouldn’t.

This is the 21st century, we are not a generation that is supposed to wait for things to happen; we should make them happen.

The executive and the legislature have to realise that the honeymoon could be over before they even realize it.

They should also leave enough of the pie for the future governors and stop eroding the jewels which lie in their hands.

A ga le ke le akanya bana ba bana ba lona? (Do you ever think of future generation?)

Batswana should learn to handle power; they should also learn to go above petty politics.

BOMMA LE BORRA STOP TAKING OUR COUNTRY TO THE DOGS. WE DESERVE BETTER. AND DON’T TAKE US ORDINARY MORTALS FOR GRANTED; LE TLAA HAKGAMALA
