Former Botswana Intelligence Boss Facing Corruption Charges
The once-feared head of Botswana's Directorate of Intelligence Services (DIS), Isaac Kgosi was arrested at Gaborone's Sir Seretse Khama Airport on suspicion of tax evasion. Kgosi, who had been a spy boss since 2009, was fired by President Mokgweetsi Masisi in May 2018. During his tenure, Kgosi boldly told the parliamentary public accounts committee that, as the spy chief, he is the accounting officer and doesn't report to anyone on issues of operations, not even the president.
