Botswana: Government Decides Not to Recognise Recognise Bakgatla Paramount

Lauri comments on the decision by the government of Botswana not to recognise the paramount chief of the Bakgtla: “I wrote before about the controversy around Kgosi Kgafela but since then things have grown quite tense between the Bakgatla chief and the Khama administration. Kgafela was brought before the court for “unlawful flogging” and the case is on going…This move by the government seems rash in a country based on consultation. We wait and see what the response will be.”
