“I Have Earth-Shaking News”

Benson C Saili
THIS EARTH, MY BROTHER 
   

She was the world’s most recognisable face since Muhammad Ali and Michael Jackson and was tipped to be the symbolic heir to Mother Theresa on account of her scintillating philanthropic passion. About 20 years ago, Diana Princess of Wales met her fate in a road mishap in a Paris underpass.

Was it really an accident or a tactical elimination? In a new series titled Lady Die, BENSON C SAILI with typical meticulous research peers behind the veil to expose a sophisticated plot woven together by British and French intelligence and aided and abetted by Mossad and the CIA.   

Dear General Atiku,
 
It is said the good die young. Jesus, according to the dud, mainstream version, was nailed to the stake at 33. Alexander the Great too shuffled off his mortal coil at age 33. Thomas Sankara, Africa’s greatest son as you may be aware General, was cruelly cut down by the Devil-Incarnate Blaise He-Will-Go-To-Blazes Compaore two months before he turned 37. 

Ernesto Che Guevara, forever the gold standard of revolutionary fortitude and zealotry, was killed in cold blood at the behest of the CIA barely four months after he attained his 39th birthday.  Jack Kennedy, America’s finest president ever, was dispatched in a hail of gunfire when he was only 48 years old, still a spring chicken really.  My own personal hero, Christopher Hani, was just on the cusp of 51 when he met his fate at the hands of that diabolical Pole whose name I will not deign to mention.

The subject at issue, Princess Diana Spencer, was sacrificed at age 36. The emphasis is deliberate General. Of course you may wonder, General, at my employment of the term “sacrifice”. Granted, it is a bold and audacious assertion. Am I laying it on a little too thick General? Am I recklessly stretching the truth? Is it all mumble jumbo, nothing more than unanchored speculation? Is it a classic case of peddling the sensational and the superficial?

Well, General, I elect not to go into the polemics of my standpoint, particularly at this early stage of the narrative when I’m just getting on my marks, when I’m just about to shoot off from the blocks.  Rather, I leave it to you, and indeed to the wider readership, to draw your own, considered conclusions on the basis of the perspective I am about to set down. Just as beauty, General,  is in the eyes of the beholder, whether a view that has been posited  makes sense or belongs to the refuse bin is all up to the discerning, objective, and level-headed observer.   

You will agree with me, General, that the death of any young person, particularly in chillingly tragic circumstances, is an apocalypse. The Bible, which I reference purely from a philosophical point of view and not as the inerrant and infallible “Word of God”, says,  “The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh”. It is said the “Good Lord” often or invariably withdraws a soul from this reality when it has fulfilled its purpose early and not necessarily when it has attained the allotted Three-Score-And-Ten. Talk about hogwash!

Princes Diana as you well know General was a marvellous human being, arguably the sweetest soul amongst the ranks of people of her generation who strutted the public stage.  True, she was not a Mother Theresa or a Dalai Lama: like you and I General, she was fraught with a whole host of shortcomings. A martyr she was; a saint she wasn’t. Pulchritudinally, she wasn’t even half as gorgeous as your greatest obsession Marilyn Monroe,  nor was she a fraction the enchantress that is the inimitable Beyonce Knowles Carter. 

Yet there’s no denying the fact that she simply was one of a kind. A legacy is etched into the hearts of others and the stories they share about you.  Princes Diana was truly the Queen of Hearts: she carved her name not on tombstones, like George W Bush and Antony Blair, but on our hearts. Sadly, she was a flower that bloomed just as it wilted, that began its life with an all too early ending. Having burnt so brightly before she went to Glory, her brightness shines for all time anyway.  

Certainly, by dying young, a person stays young in peoples’ memories. This is one of the most memorable moral precepts she enunciated forth: “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”  The acts of kindness she wrought were multifarious, multifaceted, and therefore priceless. She had many more such  acts to edify the world with in the fullness of time. She went too soon General.  If there is a god who as some suppose prised her from the world when  she hadn’t even reached the noon of her life, I’m afraid that  god is a Devil finish and klaar.

Everyone, including you General, plays their own song in their pilgrimage in life. They sing their story to the world and leave behind a melody of memories. Diana left such memories galore General. To me, and possibly to you too General, her death was such a loss it remains an enduring bereavement: she was such a ray of sunshine who illuminated and buoyed up the spirits of many a  depressed, dejected, and downtrodden  people from across the length and breadth of the globe. Indeed, she was a beacon of genuine goodness that tragically is “frowned upon by people who reside  on the opposite side of the moral spectrum”.

Yet I must hasten to underscore, General, that this series is not meant to canonise or otherwise deify her, that it is far from her apotheosis. In fact, it is not so much about her as about the intrigues of the Illuminati – the archontic forces who rule the world from behind the drapes. And since it is you General who proposed the series, I have the pleasure  of informing you  that  it is not only dedicated to you: it is also addressed to you!

If you recall General, I did undertake to you during our brief dialogue on social media that in penning the saga and fate of the great Princess, I would sing like a canary. Well, here is my song General …

I remain General,
Ever Your Boon Companion,
Benson C Saili,

“MY HUSBAND WANTS ME DEAD”

You will  be aware, General, that when the curtain closed on the infuriatingly short life of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997, it was in the context of a car accident. As she drew her last breath, the princess must have mentally sighed, “Well, it was certain to end like this wasn’t it?”

I intuit as such, General, because ten months before she died, Diana had been secretly tipped as to how her demise might unfold. In October 1996, exactly ten months after her divorce from Princes Charles was finalised, she wrote a note to her butler Paul Burrell in which she expressed anxiety that Charles was plotting her death. “This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous,” she despaired in the note.   “My husband is planning an accident in my car – brake failure and serious head injury.”

Even earlier, in 1995, the princess had in a soul-baring note to  her solicitor, Lord Mishcon, expressed the same fears: she forecast that she would  die in a planned road crash in 1996. Lord Mishcon passed the note to Lord Paul Condon,  the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, who sadly but deliberately  sat on it. Charles wanted her dead, the princess  went on in the Paul Burrell note, “in order to make the path clear for him to marry Tiggy.”

Tiggy Legge-Bourke was Charles’ royal nanny, curiously hired only  a month after he and Diana  separated in December 1992. She was employed under the pretext of looking after the young princes William and Harry, then 10 and 8 years respectively,  but Diana was aware it was all a smokescreen.  She would in due course let it be known through the British media that Tiggy, who openly admitted to having had a “schoolgirl crush” on Charles, had in fact fallen pregnant by  him but had aborted the baby.

Of  course Diana’s hypothesis, it turned out,  was dead wrong: it was Camilla Parker-Bowles Charles  was destined to marry after Diana and not Tiggy. In the same note the princess scribbled for her butler, she said she hoped he would guard it jealously and only avail it to the world in the event that her road accident death indeed came to pass. Burrell, however, was not the “rock” she deemed him to be General: when the princess was killed in the Paris car crash, he baulked at fulfilling her wish.  It was not until 2003, six years too late, that he made mention of the note in his book A Royal Duty.  

Although the accident in which she perished – prima facie, that is – did not happen in exactly the same way she envisaged it, it was close enough. In any case, the end result  still was murder. But why was the princess murdered General? What crime did she commit against the forces that hold omnipotent sway in this world?”

DIANA’S BIGGEST SECRET

On March 17, 1997, Princess Diana, then the world’s most famous woman, fulfilled a long-held personal yearning when he met Nelson Mandela, then the most recognisable political face on the globe, at his holiday home in Cape Town.  As the two socio-politico celebrities conferred, Diana poured out her heart to Madiba, recounting to him all the trials and tribulations that had been her daily potion since her divorce from Prince Charles.

Touched by what he had heard from the tear-sodden princess, Madiba recommended the great Zulu shaman, Credo Mutwa, for a form of spiritual therapy. Madiba  himself  had consulted Credo from time to time for spiritual illumination of some  sort. No sooner had the princess returned to London than she called the great Zulu sanusi. In doing so, she took care to make the call from a telephone booth at Marks & Spencers, a major UK department store located in the vicinities of Kensington Palace, her home, with a view to circumventing the obviously MI-6-tapped domestic line.

“I was stunned when I got her call,” Credo told a Western journalist. “But the more I listened, the more I realised she needed help.” Exactly what was it, General,  that Diana called the then 76-year-old Credo about? According to the prolific British author and researcher David Icke, a long-standing close friend of Credo, Diana told Credo that “she had something to reveal that would shake the world and she wanted his advice on how best to do it”.

When Icke asked Credo as to whether the dirt Diana wanted to dish was about the House of Windsor and its unabashed connection to global trafficking, the Zulu colossus laughed and shook his head. “Oh no, it was much worse than that,” he said. “She was about to tell the world something very important.”  In his 1999 book, The Biggest Secret,  Icke was guarded about hitting the nail squarely on the head in respect of Credo’s elucidation on the matter but in the closing chapters of the book, he finally came clean on the biggest secret Diana wanted splashed across the front pages of newspapers around the world and for which she had sought  the legendary Zulu shaman.

This biggest secret, General,  was that the Windsors, the British royal family,  were not human but Reptilians. This is what Icke says in Chapter 19 of The Biggest Secret: “While researching this book, I was introduced to Christine Fitzgerald, a brilliant and gifted healer, who was a close friend and confidant of Diana for nine years … It is clear that Diana knew about the true nature of the royal family’s genetic history and the Reptilian control. Her nicknames for the Windsors were ‘The Lizards’ and ‘The Reptiles’ and she used to say in all seriousness: ‘They’re not human’.”

By his own admission, Credo Mutwa had been initiated into secret knowledge about the Reptilians, who he calls the Chitauli, and their covert control of the entire world since days immemorial. It thus was fitting for Diana to seek to consult an expert in the ways of the Chitauli before she spilt the beans. The fact that she didn’t is evidence in itself that Credo warned her about the danger to her life of exposing the Windsors as such. But the mere intimation of having toyed with the idea of exposing them was blasphemy, General.  It was one of the many straws that broke their backs: five months later, the princess was no more.

CREDO SEES HORROR IN PRINCESS’ DESTINY

Princess Diana, General, was keen to know precious much about the Reptilian race (humans who carry at least 50 percent of the genes of the Reptoid/Lizard  race, originally from the Draco  star system, about 100 to 380 light years from Earth). So in April that very year, she flew back to South Africa to meet Credo in person at his home in the Shamwari Game Reserve near Port Elizabeth.

As the shaman tutored her about the Reptilian agenda for global domination and its vampirism of mankind, the princess besought Credo to “cast the bones” to help her find meaning in her life.  “Throwing the bones” is a way of divination that is informed by the pattern the bones – in Credo’s case ancient bones of the lion, leopard, and elephant handed down from the legendary Zulu warrior king Shaka of Mfecane fame – form once they are randomly cast on the ground. Credo obliged her and did likewise. The result was at once chilling and uplifting.  

"She wanted to know about her future,” Credo, who called Diana “Little Sister”, said to the same Western journalist referred to above.  “What I saw in the bones for her was both wonderful and terrifying.  It scared the stuffing out of me. First, I saw great happiness for her. She would meet and fall in love with a foreigner. I saw she would leave Britain after they married and she would come to live for part of the year in South Africa. But one of the bones that came up was a battle axe that showed a terrible weapon of destruction was poised upon her. I saw she would die a terrible death, before her happiness would be fulfilled.”

But like every other right-thinking person, General, Credo did not make known to her the nether aspects of what he foresaw. “I certainly could not tell her,” he says. “How could I?” You will agree with me, General, that telling her would simply have exacerbated her misery and possibly made her    contemplate suicide as a less grim way out.

The princess was ecstatic that she would at long last find love after years of affairs and flings that led to nowhere and which only served to break her heart to a  point where it could no longer mend. Over the next few months, she kept up a steady exchange of discreetly couriered letters with Credo even as she developed a great interest in spiritualism, picking the brains of clairvoyant upon clairvoyant in London.

CREDO PROPHECY COMES TO PASS

In July, the princess and a rich, handsome Arab playboy crossed paths. For the Arab, it was love from the get-go General. In the princess’ case, the first question that obviously came to mind was, “Is this the man Credo alluded to? Is he my knight in shining armour?” Although she too   was more than platonically drawn to him, she wanted to size him up first for a reasonable length of time before she snuggled up with him.

But in only a matter of weeks, General, she was head over heels about him: there certainly  was love in the air, with the wedding bells set to ring much more sooner than later. The Arab playboy there and then began mending his ways, unceremoniously dumping his celebrity girlfriend of years just by the stroke of a pen. The princess was so impressed with the rapid fulfilment of Credo’s Nostradamus act that she scheduled a personal  introduction of her new beau to him for that September. 

A reservation for a room with a four-poster bed in the  Pretoria Suite of the secluded Shamwari Lodge complex and with the asking price of  £524 per night was made by the  princess for September 14th.  The head chef had even laid up a special African menu for the couple, which included the traditional Kudu Wellington – venison (deer meat) wrapped in pastry.  

But there was more. During their trip  to South Africa, Diana and her man were to engage in discussions concerning the making of a nature conservation movie titled  Mambo, which was about children striving to safeguard an  elephant from a culling.  The movie would star Gene Hackman and Embeth Davitz of Schindler’s List fame, with Credo himself making a cameo appearance too. Diana’s de facto  fiancé, who was a movie producer of some note himself, undertook to bankroll the movie to the tune of £20 million.

A euphoric Credo had even picked an 800-year-old necklace of love beads for a present for the two love birds when they pitched up at his Shamwari compound. Then it all unravelled General. In the early hours of the morning of August 31, 1997, exactly two weeks before the princess and her Arab Romeo were to visit Credo, his wife and high priestess Mama Nobela went into a trance-like state. 

“She started screaming and rolling on the ground saying, ‘Ufile, ufile, umfazi we Kiwa!’ (‘She is dead, the white woman! The Princess has gone!’). Just then, there was a knock on our door and a woman told us that Princess Diana was killed in a car accident.   I was so stunned my knees just went to water. It was one of the most traumatic moments of my life.” It was all over for the princess, General, who unbeknownst to much of the world was a bloodline descendent of Jesus of Nazareth! Exactly what happened General?  How was her death orchestrated? To which god was she sacrificed General?

Is COVID-19 Flogging an Already Dead Economic Horse?

9th September 2020

The Central Bank has by way of its Monetary Policy Statement informed us that the Botswana economy is likely to contract by 8.9 percent over the course of the year 2020.

The IMF paints an even gloomier picture – a shrinkage of the order of 9.6 percent.  That translates to just under $2 billion hived off from the overall economic yield given our average GDP of roughly $18 billion a year. In Pula terms, this is about P23 billion less goods and services produced in the country and you and I have a good guess as to what such a sum can do in terms of job creation and sustainability, boosting tax revenue, succouring both recurrent and development expenditure, and on the whole keeping our teeny-weeny economy in relatively good nick.

Union of Blue Bloods

9th September 2020

Joseph’s and Judah’s family lines conjoin to produce lineal seed

Just to recap, General Atiku, the Israelites were not headed for uncharted territory. The Promised Land teemed with Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. These nations were not simply going to cut and run when they saw columns of battle-ready Israelites approach: they were going to fight to the death.

Security Sector Private Bills: What are they about?

9th September 2020

Parliament has begun debates on three related Private Members Bills on the conditions of service of members of the Security Sector.

The Bills are Prisons (Amendment) Bill, 2019, Police (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and Botswana Defence Force (Amendment) Bill, 2019. The Bills seek to amend the three statutes so that officers are placed on full salaries when on interdictions or suspensions whilst facing disciplinary boards or courts of law.

In terms of the Public Service Act, 2008 which took effect in 2010, civil servants who are indicted are paid full salary and not a portion of their emolument. Section 35(3) of the Act specifically provides that “An employee’s salary shall not be withheld during the period of his or her suspension”.

However, when parliament reformed the public service law to allow civil servants to unionize, among other things, and extended the said protection of their salaries, the process was not completed. When the House conferred the benefit on civil servants, members of the disciplined forces were left out by not accordingly amending the laws regulating their employment.

The Bills stated above seeks to ask Parliament to also include members of the forces on the said benefit. It is unfair not to include soldiers or military officers, police officers and prison waders in the benefit. Paying an officer who is facing either external or internal charges full pay is in line with the notion of ei incumbit probation qui dicit, non qui negat or the presumption of innocence; that the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies.

The officers facing charges, either internal disciplinary or criminal charges before the courts, must be presumed innocent until proven otherwise. Paying them a portion of their salary is penalty and therefore arbitrary. Punishment by way of loss of income or anything should come as a result of a finding on the guilt by a competent court of law, tribunal or disciplinary board.

What was the rationale behind this reform in 2008 when the Public Service Act was adopted? First it was the presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.

The presumption of innocence is the legal principle that one is considered “innocent until proven guilty”. In terms of the constitution and other laws of Botswana, the presumption of innocence is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, and it is an international human right under the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11.

Withholding a civil servant’s salary because they are accused of an internal disciplinary offense or a criminal offense in the courts of law, was seen as punishment before a decision by a tribunal, disciplinary board or a court of law actually finds someone culpable. Parliament in its wisdom decided that no one deserves this premature punishment.

Secondly, it was considered that people’s lives got destroyed by withholding of financial benefits during internal or judicial trials. Protection of wages is very important for any worker. Workers commit their salaries, they pay mortgages, car loans, insurances, schools fees for children and other things. When public servants were experiencing salary cuts because of interdictions, they lost their homes, cars and their children’s future.

They plummeted into instant destitution. People lost their livelihoods. Families crumbled. What was disheartening was that in many cases, these workers are ultimately exonerated by the courts or disciplinary tribunals. When they are cleared, the harm suffered is usually irreparable. Even if one is reimbursed all their dues, it is difficult to almost impossible to get one’s life back to normal.

There is a reasoning that members of the security sector should be held to very high standards of discipline and moral compass. This is true. However, other more senior public servants such as judges, permanent secretary to the President and ministers have faced suspensions, interdictions and or criminal charges in the courts but were placed on full salaries.

The yardstick against which security sector officers are held cannot be higher than the aforementioned public officials. It just wouldn’t make sense. They are in charge of the security and operate in a very sensitive area, but cannot in anyway be held to higher standards that prosecutors, magistrates, judges, ministers and even senior officials such as permanent secretaries.

Moreover, jail guards, police officers and soldiers, have unique harsh punishments which deter many of them from committing misdemeanors and serious crimes. So, the argument that if the suspension or interdiction with full pay is introduced it would open floodgates of lawlessness is illogical.

Security Sector members work in very difficult conditions. Sometimes this drives them into depression and other emotional conditions. The truth is that many seldom receive proper and adequate counseling or such related therapies. They see horrifying scenes whilst on duty. Jail guards double as hangmen/women.

Detectives attend to autopsies on cases they are dealing with. Traffic police officers are usually the first at accident scenes. Soldiers fight and kill poachers. In all these cases, their minds are troubled. They are human. These conditions also play a part in their behaviors. They are actually more deserving to be paid full salaries when they’re facing allegations of misconduct.

To withhold up to 50 percent of the police, prison workers and the military officers’ salaries during their interdiction or suspensions from work is punitive, insensitive and prejudicial as we do not do the same for other employees employed by the government.

The rest enjoy their full salaries when they are at home and it is for a good reason as no one should be made to suffer before being found blameworthy. The ruling party seems to have taken a position to negate the Bills and the collective opposition argue in the affirmative. The debate have just began and will continue next week Thursday, a day designated for Private Bills.
