Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Rift in Botswana ruling party

Botswana’s president has moved against a rival in his party, exposing an internal split with only months to go before elections.

  • AU Summit failed Africa: Botswana VP

  • Don’t recognise Mugabe: Botswana

    On Tuesday, President Seretse Ian Khama suspended party Secretary General Gomolemo Motsweledi for 60 days.

    Khama says Motsweledi brought the party into disrepute by criticising the party’s law firm, which includes a lawyer who is a friend of Khama.

    In his announcement, Khama indicated Motsweledi will be barred from running for parliament on the party ticket in October elections.

    Khama is the party’s candidate in presidential elections that will be held alongside the parliament vote. He has considerable support because of the popularity of his late father Sir Seretse Khama, Botswana’s first president.
