In challenging times like this, It is frustrating to have an indecisive President like Masisi who acts based on what his role Presidents are doing or via Facebook pressure.
During Khama’s era borders could have long been closed once the Covid19 news broke out. Of course, for a good cause and Batswana would have been complaining by now; calling him satan and a dictator who doesn’t consult his people whereas he is saving their lives.
Khama had a backbone and never was he a coward to rule the nation by hiding at Musu when the nation needs him most. The saddest reason why the nurses are threatening to strike is due to their lack of trust in their less dignified President. This would have never happened during Khama’s time. Donors never had a problem with giving millions like during Masisi’s term and surely every one of us could have been given free respiratory mask
We once had the best leader. Although he had his own flaws, Khama was not a child-man who would think of flying to foreign countries to ask how to deal with COVID19 instead other countries were gonna come to him asking how he resolved the issue well. That is him and indeed Masisi has a long way to qualify for running government affairs. Perhaps, Masisi should also consider stopping running the country via Facebook… that is a clear sign of weak leadership
Cry Presidentless nation! We miss and need Khama’s resolute stature in days like this!
