Former president Sir Seretse Khama could be turning in his resting place at the extent of confusion his sons have wrought in his beloved party and country.

The last vestiges of the Khama dynasty that has spanned over 50 years are suddenly self-destructing in a public spectacle that defies logic and denigrates all the values that founding president Sir Seretse Khama espoused. Immediate past president Ian Khama is not only suing President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s government for refusing his choice of private secretary in the person of former director of the notorious spy agency, DISS, Isaac Kgosi, but his younger brother, Minister and MP for Serowe West, Tshekedi Khama is also suing the party (BDP) at whose pleasure he serves. Perhaps this sordid turn of events is best summed up by BCP president’s quip that ‘chickens have now come home to roost for the BDP government’ because in Khama- he posits an epigram- the BDP has built a ‘monster that knows no rules and respects no institution’, and must therefore, be allowed the opportunity to ‘reap what it has sown’ as  factional wars begin to tear the party apart ahead of  the 2019 general election.
