The numbers game

The Voice BW - Ven, 20/05/2022 - 2:55pm

Making sense of the census

For the second census running, Botswana’s population has officially increased by 300, 000 in the space of a decade.

Back in 2001, it was estimated there were 1.7 million people living in Botswana. A decade later, that number had risen to two million.

Now, according to the Population and Housing Census Preliminary Results released by Statistics Botswana this week, the figure stands at 2.3 million.

It represents a yearly percentage growth of 1.5 percent, which is considered normal.
However, it seems for many locals, this just isn’t fast enough…

Dr Maxwell Nhlatho – Doctors Inn Hospital Managing Director
I don’t know if our stagnation is due to an equivalent birth/deaths equation or we just don’t have enough births. If it’s low birth rates then our problems are much bigger. In the United States, they have an aggressive population growth plan. They allow quality immigration through academia, professional works, sports, music and others and such people come with their families. This shows how important it is for them to have a large population. Who are we to think we don’t need a rapidly growing population? We are screwed as a nation! It means we cannot compete with the world. South Africa dominates the region because of its population superiority. Investors take interest in numbers so we are less likely to attract investors and we will forever depend on growing countries.

Dr Alfred Madigele – Madigele Clinics MD
The fertility rate has reduced due to a number of reasons, amongst them: diet, disease prevalence and improved family planning methods. Economic factors have also contributed to decline in fertility rate; the cost of raising a child has increased. Inflation has increased, leading to an increase in cost of living. There is also a housing and employment problem for younger people, who in turn are becoming less interested in having kids. Socially, there is weakening of traditional values and norms of the society concerning parenting and child raising. There is also strengthening of norms of western cultures of smaller families.

Moemedi Malesela – Former President of Botswana National Union of Students
The birth rate has been low in the past 10 years as the result of people being educated, balancing it with the standard of living which has increased. One of the key factors which played a role in the standard of living being up was the recession. Those were not all factors which led to a low increase in population growth as the other factor was the death of people caused by the Covid-19 Virus. The Coronavirus killed many people and reduced population growth. Another factor was Non Communicable Diseases. We have experienced a high number of such diseases in the past decade, which plays a significant role in the low increase in population growth.

Pulafela Majoo – University of Botswana Graduate
Traditionally, Batswana were uneducated and children were the primary source of social capital and wealth. Children could be used to complement adult’s/parent’s efforts in household and family maintenance activities, including farming, ploughing and wealth generation, which was made through barter trade and the sale of these goods. Recent trends indicate that Batswana now prioritise education, and professional/ personal development. This requires dedicated studies and education qualifications. Both males and females share the sentiment and are accordingly focused on other aspects than child bearing. Due to delayed child bearing in pursuit of other ventures, fewer families have many children.
Additionally, raising a child is now expensive. Children use disposable nappies, drink formula milk, and require nannies and early childhood services, including day care.
Also, take into consideration that primary services, such as food, rent, water, transportation and electricity, to mention a few, have also increased in costs. Resultantly, children are expensive and current pay structures do not adequately cater for these costs. Moreover, many youth are unemployed thus making their lives already hard without children. Adding children to an already struggling person is not an option; hence low births!

Carol Libs – Young Entrepreneur
I suspect Census is not doing their job very well – they might be cooking up numbers! When one looks at the Kasane population it does not add up at all, even some rural areas; maybe they failed to reach them and came up with their own numbers. I suspect that they came up with their own low numbers so that they do not get pressure to bring developments. They will use the low figures in some areas as scapegoat.

Chakalisa Chinyolo – Businessman
Young and better educated people move to larger towns and cities for better basic amnesties as well as solely fending for the existing dependants as opposed to increasing them simply because the cost of living has become so expensive. In today’s globalised world, immigration (into a country) and emigration (leaving a country) impacts massively on population increase or decrease. On another note, Botswana population still has more females than males.

Freed from a charge of publishing lover’s nudes

The Voice BW - Ven, 20/05/2022 - 2:02pm

State fails to prosecute revenge pornography case

In what he says was an act of bragging rights and trying to prove a point, a man landed in serious trouble for publishing his girlfriend’s nude pictures on social media.

The man, jimmy Monametsi appeared before the Lobatse Magistrate court this week facing a single count of revenge pornography, an offence that could send him to prison for two years if he was found guilty

According to the cybercrime and computer-related crime act 2018 “A person who, by means of a computer or computer system discloses or publishes a private sexual photograph or film without the consent of the person who appears in the photograph or film, and with the intention of causing that person distress, commits an offence and is liable to a fine not exceeding P40 000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years, or to both.”

However, lady luck was on his side as he was freed and acquitted of the charge as a result of an apparent lack of seriousness from the state prompting the court to free Monametsi from the charge of revenge pornography against his now ex- lover.

Facts of the case are that Monametsi (31) who was at the time employed as an assistant scientific officer at Botswana Housing Corporation (BHC), on July 6 2019 unlawfully published private sexual photographs of his then girlfriend Lame Thando Releseng on the internet and on facebook and his Watsap without her consent.

According to the charge sheet Monametsi’s intentions were to cause the victim distress.

He pleaded not guilty and told the court that infact he had published the photos because he was being blackmailed by some people demanding that he show proof that he was indeed in a relationship with Releseng. He told the court that to prove he was in a relationship with her he sent them her nudes.

He further told the court that he had asked for forgiveness from the victim and she had forgiven him.

Trial was scheduled to commence this week but was dismissed by the Lobatse Chief Magistrate Gofaone Morweng.

The state had refused to withdraw the matter stating that the offence was serious in nature, when it came down to the crunch, the state failed to sure seriousness on their part.

For starters the substantive prosecutor did not turn up to trial rather the prosecutor instructed another prosecutor to tell the court that the state wishes to withdraw the matter with an option to reinstate the case at a later time.

The state told the court that there were some loop holes and more investigation needed to be carried out, the Magistrate would have none of it instead opting to completely acquit the accused on the basis that the state had not shown seriousness to prosecute the matter.

Loyal Lecco sticks with kwaito

The Voice BW - Ven, 20/05/2022 - 2:00pm

Kwaito kid, Lecco, is one man dedicated to Kwaito despite the genre having reached its sell-by date.

The music, which was huge in the 90s, has been overshadowed by House, Afro Tech, Gqom and the latest craze, Amapiano.

However, the 999 stable member remains loyal to the genre, made popular by his producer, Arthur Mafokate.

In his bid to breathe life back into the sound, Lecco has released Shova, a single in which he teamed up with legendary producer, Dr. Tawanda, as well as Arthur.

He will be performing the song this Friday in Moshupa and on Saturday at Capadona together with South African Kwaito group, Trompies.

RATINGS: 7.5/10

Best places in South Africa where you can see the ‘Big Five’

The Voice BW - Gio, 19/05/2022 - 11:57am

South Africa offers a tremendously accessible opportunity to view some spectacular wildlife in a tourist-friendly and value-for-money country.

Not only that, but the big five can be found in a variety of national parks and private game reserves, so you can see them all on a single safari.

Hunters dubbed the African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Lion, and Rhinoceros “the big five” because they were thought to be the most difficult and deadly African species to kill while hunting on foot.

The following are the greatest spots in South Africa to see the big five:

1. Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park is one of South Africa’s most popular safari parks and the greatest site to see the big five.

Kruger is the most thrilling African safari location, located five hours east of Johannesburg.

Kruger National Park boasts a high density of wild species and is one of the greatest sites in the world to observe the Big 5 — lions, rhinos, elephants, buffaloes, and the elusive leopard.

2. Pilanesberg National Park

Pilanesberg Nature Reserve, located less than three hours’ drive from Johannesburg, is a calm respite from the hectic streets of daily life and one of the greatest spots in South Africa to observe the Big 5.

Located in a volcano crater built more than 1.2 billion years ago, Pilanesberg safaris introduce visitors to a unique and varied terrain rich in plant and animal life.

With over 7000 animal species and over 300 bird species, it is no surprise that Pilanesberg is a must-see destination in South Africa.

Aside from gaining a closer look at the different natural resources, there is also the possibility of seeing rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and lions wandering the African jungle.

3. Klaserie Private Nature Reserve

Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is part of the larger Kruger National Park and spans 60,000 hectares.

That means the Big 5 may freely move in and out of the reserve’s boundaries.

Everything from buffalo, elephants, and rhinos to lions and leopards may be found.

But what makes Klaserie truly unique is the chance to observe endangered animals such as African painted dogs and cheetahs.

Klaserie is located 40 kilometres east of Hoedspruit and is an easy addition to any two-week South African itinerary.

4. Madikwe Game Reserve

Madikwe is a magnificent private game reserve that offers all tourists a genuinely memorable safari experience.

While many people think of Kruger, Madikwe is a far less crowded choice with as superb game watching.

Madikwe Game Reserve is South Africa’s fifth largest game reserve and a big five reserve.

The game reserve is home to almost 60 animal species and a population of over 10,000 animals.

5. Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is South Africa’s oldest wildlife reserve, established with the objective of saving and repopulating Africa’s rhinos.

Not only can you view all of the Big 5, but it is also the finest site in South Africa to see rhinos.

While the Big 5 are all present, cats might be tough to see.

If you do happen to see one, you could be rewarded with a rare view of lions resting in the woods.

In the summer, lions are known to climb trees in search of relief from the oppressive heat.

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi is located in Kwa-Zulu Natal, on South Africa’s eastern coast.

The big secret

The Voice BW - Mer, 18/05/2022 - 8:00am

Attorney General defies court order to take DCEC files for safekeeping

The case in which the Director General (DG) of the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC), Tymon Katlholo, seeks to interdict the DIS from meddling in DCEC investigations, was set to proceed on Thursday (yesterday) in camera.

During an urgent application that was filed on Sunday and heard on Monday, the court had ordered that a representative of the Attorney Generals and under the escort of the Botswana police Service, specifically SSG, should take custody of the DCEC documents that were demanded by the DIS and deposit them for safekeeping in a vault at the High court.

However, it has emerged that the office of the Attorney General had by Wednesday blatantly defied the court order and the documents were still languishing at the DCEC boss’s office, which remains sealed.

Meanwhile, inside sources have revealed that it is not business as usual at the DCEC as staff had to undergo counselling because of the uncertainty brought about by the invasion of the corruption-busting agency by the spy agency.

KEEPING AN EYE: Deputy DG, Israel

“There is also the heightened tension between the DG and the controversial deputy DG, Priscilla Israel, which is palpable and evident in the office,” a source said, adding that apparently trouble started at DCEC offices sometime in June last year when Israel was reportedly transferred form the DPP to spy on Katlholo in particular.

“She has lodged a formal complaint with Minister Morwaeng that Katlholo did not welcome her nicely on the first day. She also reported him for allegedly fraternising with the opposition by inviting MP for Jwaneng Mabutsane, Mephato reatile, to a DCEC event in the MP’s area once,” the reliable source further stated.

In a supporting affidavit for the Thursday case, DCEC has come out guns blazing to condemn the manner in which the DIS have been demanding files from DCEC since 2021 to date as unlawful and akin to an attempt to undermine and micromanage an autonomous instruction.

Katlholo further avers that,“The DIS deliberately wants to administratively destabilise the DCEC.”

The Voice can reveal that the DG has listed at least eight files that the DIS is interested in, most of which are closed, save for the Sebina brothers’ corruption case, which is still under investigations.

DIS DIRECTOR GENERAL: Magosi

For its part, the DIS has raised preliminary points arguing that the DG has no authority to represent DCEC in court matters and therefore cannot instruct any lawyers to do so on his behalf.

Although Katlholo has intimated at suspicions that the DIS wanted to gain unlimited access into his office, not necessarily for the closed files but to steal files relating to investigations of some so their high ranking officials, when appearing before the parliamentary public accounts committee, the DIS DG, Peter Magosi, said that no one is above the law and that if he, too, were to be investigated, he would not interfere with such investigations.

Magosi further told PAC that everything that the DIS has been doing is within the limits of the law and that, in time, the public will get to understand why the DIS did certain things the way they did.

Uncle Waffles pays her dues

The Voice BW - Mar, 17/05/2022 - 4:10pm
With jail looming, no-show South African forks up P90, 000

After failing to turn up for a local show last month, even though she pocketed her appearance fee, South African star Uncle Waffles hastily paid back the money on Saturday to avoid a potential stint in a Botswana prison.

The in-demand ‘Tanzania’ hit-maker stumped up P90, 000 for breach of contract shortly after landing in the country prior to her weekend gig with DJ Zinhle at Cigar Lounge.

This after the unhappy promoters who booked her for the Six2Six ‘I’lala Vuka’ show at Molapo Piazza on 30 April filed an urgent application before Lobatse Magistrates Court the night before.

They duly got their wish, with Chief Magistrate, Gofaone Morweng ordering, “A rule nisi is hereby granted and returnable on 12th of May 2022.

Directing and ordering that the respondent be and is hereby incarcerated at a Botswana Police Service prison facility pending the finalization of an action for damages for breach of agreement to be instituted by the applicant (Lucerne Etiene propriety limited t/a MCgenix entertainment).”

Acting on these orders, deputy sheriffs and police officers reportedly confronted the star at an up-market restaurant in Gaborone.

Faced with the options of paying up, being locked up or handing over her passport, Uncle Waffles stumped up the cash.

The drama did not distract the internationally acclaimed DJ, however, as she went on to deliver an electric performance at Cigar Lounge later that night.

Although Voice Entertainment sent a questionnaire to Uncle Waffles management on Sunday, they had still not responded by the time of going to press on Tuesday.

Uncle Waffles is not the first South African performer to miss a show and be dragged before the courts of law. Recently, Prince Benza’s passport was seized by the Village Magistrate Court for a similar matter.

Hi Tsholo Dikobe.

I would love to be experimental and bold with my winter work or casual wear.

I know men always shy away from colour but I want to try a new thing.

Please help me with 5 colours to incorporate to elevate my wardrobe this winter.

5 colours for winter!

Hi Thabo Kebadile.

I love a gentleman who does not shy of exploring all facets of style even colour!

Colors plays a visual representation in speaking for us, without us having to say a word.

According to Wikipedia, “the Psychology of colours in Marketing, color is an essential tool because it has an impact on how we think and behave. Color directs our eye where to look, what to do, and how to interpret something. It puts content into context.” Colour is a fundamental phenomenon from everyday life.

In fashion, it brings a simple effectiveness and effervescence that plays an integral role in that it carries with it a psychological meaning to affect mass consciousness.

It’s worth acquainting yourself with a few fundamental reasons why one should choose a certain colour over the other in certain occasions or situations.

The 5 colours to add to your winter wardrobe are millennial pink, sag green, varsity red, pastel purple, citrus orange and as a bonus colour, cobalt blue.

I’ll tell you why.

Thank you for contacting us.

The Power of Zion

The Voice BW - Mar, 17/05/2022 - 4:05pm
Choir Competition proves a hit

Braving the chilly temperatures, multitudes thronged to Botlhale Cambridge International School in Gaborone for a night of song and dance at the first ever BW Zion Choirs Competition.

Founded in 2016, BW Zion is a religious organisation that aims to promote Zion churches.

Although they were not part of the competition, Maun-based choir, Amakambamba set the mood with an excellent opening act, their energetic dancing a huge hit and hyping-up the crowd.

It proved the perfect appetizer for the main event.

Clad in colourful, crisp regalia, four hopefuls: The Mass of Christ, Revelations, Ubunye ba Mazion and the youthful Ubuhle be Nsindiso, took to the stage to belt out their soulful, uplifting tunes in Zulu, English and Tswana.

All did themselves proud but in the end it was Revelations who impressed the two judges most, taking home the trophy and the P4, 000 first prize.

Dressed in green robes, with striking white footwear, the choir were worthy winners, thrilling with fancy footwork, clever choreography and pitch-perfect notes in a spectacular show.

Speaking to Voice Entertainment, the brains behind the extravaganza, BW Zion founder, Lemogang Tebatso Makuo revealed the idea was to help people discover their talent, unite Zionists and promote Zion music.

“We want to see the Zionists going far with music. We also want to keep them off the streets where alcohol and drug abuse are a problem. Being in a choir requires practice, so every weekend they are busy rehearsing and do not have the time for other habits,” noted Makuo, who hopes to run the competition annually.

A lack of finances had prevented him from holding the event in previous years.

It went ahead this year thanks to the kindness of Unitaf Investments Director, Unaswi Tafila who forked out P25, 000 towards the music show.

“I sponsored because I wanted to show my support and give back to the community. I want to see Zion churches being recognised in the country,” Tafila explained.

BAC and its SRC showdown

The Voice BW - Mar, 17/05/2022 - 3:55pm

What looked to be a well planned show on Friday under the headline, BAC Semester Shutdown with South African Amapiano King, Kabza De Small as the main act is likely to end in tears for others.

Word reaching Shaya has it that the show organisers, the Student Representative Council members are not happy at how the school management pulled out at the last minute.

Shaya has seen documents from the school in which they were advising SRC of change of venue from BAC Main Campus to Fairgrounds Open Space, time frame, exclusion of the edutainment aspect and engaging more than one international artist.

SRC on the other hand has argued that the said reasons were minor and should not have hindered the show from being hosted on campus.

Shaya has also been told that some stakeholders were not paid just because of some people who wanted, ‘cuts’.

Ijaaa Shaya will be waiting at court for this one.

To add fire to the flames, Charma Gal was pictured without her hubby at the Khawa Dune Festival.

The reports proved to be spot on, with the Culture Spears pair officially divorcing in 2016.

Since then, Charma Gal has gone on to enjoy a stellar solo career.

The duo eventually smoked the peace pipe and, although it took years, have even taken to the stage together in recent times.
