The newly elected Mayor of Gaborone had an embarrassing moment this week when he was denied entry to the VIP section during one of the Mascom Top 8 matches.
Father Maphongo, or should I say the honorable, was told in no uncertain term that he wasn’t allowed VIP access because of his casual footwear.
I must admit I initially thought the over zealous security personnel had not recognized the Mayor.
Fortunately the main man’s blushes were spared as a kind hearted Samaritan lent him a smarter pair of shoes and Maphongo was allowed in!
Welcome to the big city, Mr Mayor, where you’ve got to dress to impress!
