Khama reprimands F/town councillors

No sooner had he acknowledged VIPs during the official opening of the Francistown Thapama Interchange commonly known as The Spaghetti last week, did Khama delve into calming infighting between councillors in his own party, the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP). Worried about recent repeated attempts to remove city Mayor Sylvia Muzila through motions of no confidence, Khama could not resist the temptation warn against indiscipline, all delivered in the midst of several light hearted remarks. Despite the jovial manner in which it was delivered, the warning had strong underlying tones of seriousness, following several attempts to dethrone the mayor.  Khama called on the councillors to cease with immediate effect antagonising Muzila.  Using the platform to address the looming usurpation of power from the mayor through a motion of no confidence, the president called for peace. Muzila had tactfully survived by averting a coup when she evoked powers vested on her to dissolve a scheduled full council meeting, thus preventing the tabling and discussion of the motion to remove her. Touching on internal strife in the Francistown City Council between Muzila and her detractors, Khama calling for peace and civil cooperation between those jostling for power.
