Magosi wants me to lie about Isaac Kgosi- Butterfly

SET ME FREE: Maswabi

Troubled Directorate of Intelligence and Security Services (DISS) agent Wilheminah Mphoeng Maswabi this week revealed damning allegations against her boss, Peter Magosi as she continues to fight for her freedom in her ongoing espionage case.

Maswabi, codenamed ‘Butterfly’, who is currently in state custody said in her affidavit that Magosi has been pestering her to lie about Kgosi in exchange for her freedom.

“On the day I was arraigned, 18 October 2019, and on several occasions before Peter Magosi who is the DG of the DIS repeatedly asked me questions about Mr Kgosi’s previous dealings at the DIS and said if I told him the truth and assist in discovering Mr Kgosi’s criminal wrong doing he will protect me,” her affidavit reads in part.

Maswabi further claims; “I have consistently told Mr Magosi that I am not aware of any of Mr Kgosi’s criminal activities or wrong doings. He went on to say that if I told him the truth regarding Mr Kgosi’s criminal activities he will be able to save me within 14 days, if I don’t he won’t be able to and I will lanquish in jail.”

“I therefore regard my remand as an attempt to break me in order to provide damning evidence against Mr Kgosi, which evidence I do not have. I am not about to start lying as requested by Mr Magosi,” Maswabi further says..

Through her lawyers, Maswabi- codenamed ‘Butterfly’ has filed an urgent bail application which is expected to be heard early next week before Justice Michael Mothobi of the Gaborone High Court.

This time around the defence is adamant that they have sufficient evidence to convince the court to grant Butterfly bail.

She was recently denied bail by High Court Judge, Christopher Gabanagae .

In the fresh court application, Maswabi says “I was denied bail on the basis of evidence presented by the state, which has since turned out to be false and fabricated. The companies in South Africa that I am alleged to be involved with do not exist.”

Maswabi further says “the bank accounts in the South African banks said to be holding staggering amounts of money which I am alleged to be a signatory of do not exist. My attorneys of record and in particular Mr Uyapo Ndadi has at my instance, investigated the genuineness of the allegations made by the state in the affidavit deposed by Jako Hubona in opposing my bail application before justice Gabanagae and it has turned out that the allegations were deliberately fabricated.”

“In short justice Gabanagae denied me bail relying on false evidence manufactured by the state, which evidence is malicious and defamatory.”
“To set the record straight I submit that I do not have any offshore accounts in my name. I do not have the sum of USD 33 00 000,00. Neither do I have financial interest in any company or person with an offshore account,” Maswabi states in her fresh affidavit.

She further denies having a love relation with her former spy boss, Isaac Kgosi. “I wish to state that I have never been romantically involved with Mr. Kgosi and the allegation that I shared a room with him while on an official work trip is a lie aimed at satisfying a malicious and false narrative.”

The Voice is also in possession of an affidavit made by the Managing Director of ABSA bank is south Africa, one Winston Monale, dated 11 November 2019, in which Monale says: “ ABSA has no record of any account with designated number *.it does not appear to be an Absa generated document.”

We are also in possession of an affidavit made by former President, Ian Khama, in which he claims he has never instructed Bank of Botswana on June 9 2008 or on any other date to open any special unit account.

“I expect that in any banking environment or in any financial institution instruction of the nature alleged by Hubona must be recorded for, among many reasons, audit evidence. It would therefore be very easy for the state to obtain evidence of such instruction and disclose it to the court. The reason the state is unable to adduce such evidence is because the allegation that I instructed bank of Botswana to open special unit accounts is completely false,” Khama says in court papers.
