I was in the  room in Gaborone  and follow the pre voting  discussions as
well as the votes  results. It is a bit weird  that  the board appoints a
candidate who has served *two terms* in the position and  was voted out for
the *same* mandate. It weakens  the system like all forms of inbreeding. It
is like a board vs community.
I also don't think this recycling  is healthy  for our emerging community.

Thank you.
