The big lion roars

He stepped down as the fourth President of Botswana in April after a ten- year rule.

Dr. Ian Khama, 65, has however not stopped making headlines.

During his tenure he was labeled the people’s president as his walkabouts in villages instantly won him favour with the masses.

However his popularity was later dented when political commentators labeled him a tyrant and an oppressor who only surrounded himself with bootlickers.

This week Voice reporter, SHARON MATHALA visited Khama popularly known as SKI or Super in the field of soccer at his office in the heart of Gaborone for an explosive interview.

Q. What is your fondest memory of your Father, Seretse Khama?

A. There were many! I can’t single out a particular time but mostly moments at his cattle post, at home in Serowe or later on when we moved to Gaborone when he took the seat of the Presidency but mostly, it would be times when we sat down and discussed issues that affect Batswana.
