BOTSWANA approached the United States for arms of war and related military equipment to help prepare for an expected attack by Zimbabwe as tensions escalated between the two countries over claims President Ian Khama was harbouring MDC-T militias.


President Khama attracted the wrath of Zanu PF officials after calling for fresh elections following the disputed and violent 2008 ballot with Justice Minister Patrick Chinamasa accusing the Botswana leader of “extreme provocation”.


Zimbabwe officials further accused Botswana of giving military training to MDC-T militias to help overthrow President Robert Mugabe.
According to leaked secret US embassy communications, Botswana then asked the United States to supply various military equipment, fearing a military attack by Zimbabwe.

walau Mugabe alipata busara ya kuji-restrain na hakuishambulia botswana. angeanza vizuri ila kwa vyovyote vita ingegeuka na yeye ungekuwa mwisho wake. bora aliliona hilo (lililomshinda Ghaddafi kuliona). USA na West lazima wangeenda botswana kupambana na mugabe! ila eneo la sadc lingeyumbishwa sana na hiyo vita. Bora Mungu aliiyepushia mbali!

Hii habari mbona iliongelewa na SADC zaidi ya miaka 10 iliyopita wakati Botwana wanajiimarisha kijeshi. Marudio tu hakuna lolote hapo.
