Former parliamentary speaker, Margaret Nasha, has condemned the alleged harassment, detention and intimidation of journalists under President Khama’s regime, saying it is a clear indication that the government is hiding something in Mosu.
Speaking at a rally in Tlokweng, Nasha said the media should be allowed to expose corrupt practices, which she said appears to be the norm under the current regime.
Nasha was responding to the recent brief detention of journalists working for the Centre for Investigative Journalism, INK, who were probing the alleged mis-appropriation of public funds at the President's private residence in Mosu.
