I note the allegations contained and published in The Midweek Sun. These are serious and damning allegations in nature. I wish to state for the record that I committed no offense in relation to the complainant.
The fact that for 2 years she did not report the incident or allegation of rape says it all. I am also made aware that the same allegations were once levelled against another prominent opposition politician recently by the same complainant. Is it a coincidence? I am constrained to comment any further on this issue for reason that investigations are on-going as reported in the newspaper. I will cooperate with any competent authority in the investigations to clear my name.
My conscience is clear and it is my hope that this matter will be resolved expeditiously. I am a law abiding citizen, and as such, these cock-and-bull allegations came as a shock to me and my family. I wish to call for calm to all Gaborone residents as I am available and willing to clear my good name if indeed there is anything to in this article.
I vehemently advocate for the protection of women and minors and will stop at nothing to advocate for them. I WILL NEVER RAPE let alone engage in the alleged sexual misconduct.
