GIRLS SEXED AT BOOT CAMPS

15th May 2018

Boot camps are for academic excellence and discipline of students, not sexual entertainment spots with young girls, cautions boot camp operator and counsellor, Boyson Mokone also known as G’Word in musical circles. Mokone said reports that soldiers get intimately involved with female students during boot camps are disturbing, saying as the ‘shield of the nation’ and ‘disciplined’ cadres, the army men are expected to be the ones to protect the girls. Such liaisons deserve the strongest condemnation especially that they are done under the cloak of trying to develop a young person. He said when done properly, boot camps mould students.

Teachers headed for good times

15th May 2018

They say new brooms sweep clean. And hopefully, the new minister at Basic Education Bagalatia Arone may be destined to change the fortunes of thousands of the country’s teaching cadres. That is if words were deeds! Arone, a trained teacher by profession who says like Botswana’s second president, the late Sir Ketumile Masire, he is “seconded to politics,” and will go back to teaching, made a bold statement last week at Kgale Hill Junior Secondary in Gaborone that had teachers cheering and whistling in apparent joy. The occasion was the ground breaking ceremony to mark the construction of a special education unit at the school, courtesy of a US$ 77, 488 (P849, 187) grant contract under Japan’s grant scheme - Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects. Speaking at the auspicious occasion graced by Japan’s Ambassador to Botswana Kozo Takeda and deputy permanent secretary at Basic Education including the school’s headmaster Solomon Setswe and PTA chairman Maramba, minister Arone promised teachers that he was working tirelessly to ensure that they get time to rest when schools close. He said he could never understand why teachers don’t go for holidays but are kept in schools when they should be resting and meeting their parents. Under the current dispensation in which teachers are bundled with all other civil servants under the Public Service Act, teachers are required to fill leave days when schools close.

The ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) has been praised by a local political analyst Anthony Morima following the recent sacking of the Director General (DG) of the Directorate of Intelligence and Security Services (DISS) Colonel Isaac Kgosi in a surprise move which caught the spy boss off guard. Speaking to The Midweek Sun before Mokgweetsi Masisi’s ascension to the throne in a front page story titled, “MASISI MUST DUMP KGOSI” the analyst had said that for Masisi to gain back the confidence of Batswana he must set his own tone and drop the spy boss and other security oversight institutions and find his own suitable replacement to set a different tone altogether from his predecessor Ian Khama. Following Kgosi’s fall, Morima has praised the ruling BDP leader Masisi for taking the weakened ruling party on a positive trajectory albeit in a very short space of time.
