Botsalano’s morning festival

Published

on

Residents of Botsalano Ward in Francistown will be treated to a free music festival this Thursday at their kgotla.

An initiative of the newly elected Councillor Ontiretse Zuma Bakaile, all the top Francistown based artists are scheduled to perform at the official launch of the ward’s Development Strategy.

An artist who’s a founding member of Dinkwenkgoga Traditional Group, Bakaile has used his influence and connections within the music industry to turn what would usually be a day of long and boring speeches into an exciting event to look forward to.

According to Councillor Bakaile, Botsalano Development Strategy launch is an occasion that will bring people together for a common good.

He said he’s interested in seeing civil servants within Botsalano becoming part of the society they serve.

“It is here that I’ll be introducing some of my initiatives with residents, and all this will be delivered in a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere,” he said.

He further told The Voice that he’s disturbed by the growing number of murder cases and unemployment in the ward.

“As someone who survived through music since leaving school in 2002, I have to inspire young people and encourage them to use their God given talents to eke out a living. It is hard, but with a little bit of focus, sports and arts can be a meaningful source of income. I know what I’m talking about,” Bakaile said.

Bakaile has roped in the likes of MC Maswe and Beauty Queens, Ras T, Dinkwenkgoga, Makolwane a Tandabala, Bana Bana Ba Ntogwa, Tumza and NgwaoPutswa.

Will the musician turned politician perform with Dinkwenkgoga at the event? “I’ll continue to help the group with everything I can, but I’ll not be performing. I however will occasionally put on my traditional attire to perform, for instance when the President is visiting,” he added with a chuckle.

Shaya is not one to meddle with Police investigations and I am not about to start now but this has got me very worried.

Word reaching Shaya is that the senior officer who originally confirmed to the media that Member of Parliament (MP) Polson Majaga was being investigated for defilement has been severely scolded by Police bosses.

The officer is said to be in hot soup as his superiors are reportedly furious that he shared such information with the media.

The high-ranking cop, who was on the verge of promotion, is allegedly now facing disciplinary action.

If this turns out to be true it really stinks – Majaga should not be treated with any special treatment!

The top cop did nothing wrong.

Shaya warns the commissioner and his team to leave the poor officer alone.

Where are you Mma Atsile?

Where is our first Lady, Mma Atsile? Shaya is worried at how our First Lady has seemingly gone AWOL; the way she has been quiet of late is slightly concerning.

We may not be used to having a First Lady as we just went for 10 years without one but now we desperately need to feel her presence.

I know she was part of the #SafeHands Challenge which was gathering momentum but has since gone spookily silent.

One would have thought that by now the First Lady would be at the forefront in helping the girl child and newborns with clothes.

I know donors wouldn’t shy away from donating to her plea.
