Khama should learn from Namibian President
EDITOR — When the Namibian President, Hage Geingob, was asked by a student on what he thinks of Zimbabwe, he said that the country is a sovereign state and should be left to deal with its own issues.
If only the Botswana leader Ian Khama was to learn that each country should be allowed to handle its own business without interference or outside comments.
The overgrown bachelor broke the diplomatic holy grail and he is setting a bad precedent for future leaders from southern Africa.
Some of these uncharacteristic behaviours stem from the fact that some countries think that they are better than others because maybe their economies are a foot better than Zimbabwe at the moment.
That overconfidence is always dangerous as the Bible says, pride comes before every fall. One day Khama will look back and regret his words, fate is like that.
Khama`s unAfrican behaviour is influenced by his British roots, which makes him think that he is the proverbial commentator on the state of affairs on the continent.
He stands to be humbled in 2018 when the electorate gets to choose President Mugabe over all these other clowns. Sedrick Jokonya, Mutorashanga
