WATCH: Battle lines have been drawn before a Gaborone High Court as President Masisi’s nephew and sister begin a legal tussle over millions of Pula worth of government tenders.

Olebile Joseph Pilane, the son to the president’s late brother and former legislator- Tshelang Masisi, has instructed his lawyers, MK Moesi & Co, to seek over P17.6million which he says are funds accrued from his 40% shareholding in G&M Building Services (PTY) Ltd, a company he owned with Masisi’s sister- Boitumelo Phadi Mmutle.

The dispute emanates from a Goodhope water works project where the company was awarded a P550million tender.

Pilane has stated in his court documents that his company shares were illegally transferred to Kelebogile Monnawatshipi and Tswelakhumo Ventures, each getting 20% after he refused to donate 5% of the Goodhope water supply tender contract sum to Botswana Democratic Party as instructed by Huashi Li, the Managing Director of Pre Con Construction, a company in joint venture for the project.

Justice Michael Leburu of the Gaborone High Court has ordered the respondents to file their defense ASAP for the matter to continue.
