THE ORANGE COCKEREL
It all began as a simple flirt, but what Lobatse independent candidate Nehemiah Modubule is having with the Botswana Democratic breakaway party BMD has now become too intimate to be ignored.
From his appearance at the historic BMD rally in Francistown, Modubule was at it again last weekend at a rally in Mochudi. The hard-hitting legislator told the masses that he was a free agent, but his body language gave him away. The way he chanted the BMD slogan and repeatedly showed the party’s V sign had Shaya convinced that the expelled BNF MP has joined the orange revolution.
One can only say “Shapa Dubs Shapa!”
KAONE BACK IN BIG BROTHER?
Now if this were true, it would be a shocker! Remember Kaone Ramontshonyana, the designer? Shaya’s sources claim that the dreadlocked Kanye-born is back in the Big Brother house.
Sources claim that a farewell party was held over the weekend for the former Big Brother inmate.
Multi Choice Botswana’s Publicity and Public Relations Executive Tshepo Maphanyane said the show is set to be a full fledged all star version, featuring some of the most unforgettable, outspoken, entertaining house mates of previous editions! This means the country might see Warona Setshwaelo, Tawana Lebani and Justice Mothabani again. Please not Justice!
Though M-Net is doing all it can to keep this a secret Shaya has been informed that Kaone will be back in the House. Yours truly has it on good authority that he left for South Africa and is not coming back home soon.
VOICE PHOTOJOURNALIST ASSAULTED
The Voice photographer, Onalenna Selwe, aka Ony, nearly got smacked by an irate lady who did like to be photographed.
The lady Khumoetsile Monkutlwatsi Mohamadi was in Extension 2 Magistrate court to answer a child maintenance case. The mother who according to papers filed in court has neglected her duties of maintenance since 1996 after she broke up with the father of the child.
In realising that she was been snapped at, Mhamadi lost her cool and came charging towards the photojournalist and grabbed him by the shirt, demanding to know why she was being pictured. The ever calm lens man was caught off-guard, as the woman tightened her grip on his shirt, demanding that pictures be erased.
“I did not expect such behaviour from a lady. It was shocking, but I explained to her that I was just doing my job,” said Ony.
“She should leave us to do a job and focus on hers; maintaining a child,” he said.
JUNIOR SCHOOL SUCCESS
Now this is not a diss. I know it is hard to believe especially if it comes from me. Yours truly has learnt that a high flying DJ in one of the oldest local private radio station has achieved beyond his wildest dreams.
The fine-looking gentleman from a town in the north allegedly made it as far as Form 2. However, what shocks many is his good command of the English language, besides the fact that he is most sort after radio DJ.
He is driving top of the range motor vehicles and wears designer clothes. The problem is the gentleman never mentions his academic background when with his pals who mostly are University graduates.
My advise is dude, let it be known that you went as far as Form two and still managed to compete with those who spent over 20 years in school. There is no shame in that! I will be listening to your programme tomorrow.
UNCLE BOB JABBING AT KHAMA?
A little birdie whispered to Yours truly that Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has been watching keenly at the political atmosphere in this country. Mugabe is said to be excited by the prospect of President Ian Khama loosing elections.
The recent trip of Daniel Kwelagobe and Samson Guma Moyo to Zimbabwe further fuelled rumours that BMD might be flirting with ZANU PF.
However Kwelagobe has since distanced himself from the allegations. On the social network Facebook Kwelagobe is quoted as having been said he and Moyo have business interests in Zimbabwe. He further claimed that Mugabe was in South Africa during their visit to the country.
Allegedly the old man is ready to help the newly formed BMD with everything he has just to see them defeat Khama. Will the men in orange take the carrot? Watch this space.
