Confirming that Hubona has been left in the lurch by government and forced to dig deep in his own pocket for his own defence, his lawyer, senior counsel, Kgosietsile Ngakaagae said, “He has been slapped with defamation suit on his personal capacity so I guess he thought he may not be getting the necessary ‘protection’ from the employer for reasons best known by them and so he had to make sure he is covered.”
