Warrant of Arrest for former Botswana President Ian Seretse Khama

The government of Botswana has issued a warrant of arrest for its former President Ian Seretse Khama.

In a statement issued on 29 December 2022, the Botswana Government accused Ian Khama of unlawful possession of firearms in a case that back dates to 2016.

Following the fallout, with his predecessor, Dr Mokgweetsi E.K. Masisi, Ian Khama has been a fugitive in South Africa alleging political persecution back home.

The latest development will, however, put a dent on the Southern African country which analysts described as the most peaceful and politically stable country.
