Botswana's Masisi Breaks Silence Following Criticism by Khama

President Mokgweetsi Masisi has said he believes his party made a mistake when they approved the 2017 amendment of President Pensions and Retirement Act, saying then they could suspend former president Ian Khama's benefits. This comes after Khama said he will support the opposition against the ruling Botswana Democratic Party in the country's forthcoming elections.
