Former President Lt Gen Dr Seretse Khama Ian Khama has expressed his happiness about Welheminah Maswabi famously known as Butterfly being granted bail. Maswabi was yesterday granted bail following her arrest in October. In an exclusive interview with The Parrot News Online, Khama who is in London said Butterfly should not have been charged in the first place.
He said that bail is an opportunity for him to meet up with Maswabi and get first hand updates on what happened.
Furthermore the former President expressed his confidence on Botswana’s Judiciary.”Our Judiciary is independent and would not be influenced by anything other than by the facts presented before our courts,” Khama said.
Asked about his London trip, Khama said he went to the UK mainly at the invitation of various conservation organisations, to spend time with his family and to also do briefings about the situation in Botswana to various concerned parties.
Khama said he is also in London at the invitation of BBC where he will do a series of radio and print interviews.
