Batshu is disgrace to his office - MPs

Mmegi Online "Batshu had said the BDF Commander did not meddle in partisan politics but had merely stated the official position of the army to some politicians who had made statements 'which may incite its members to join the strike or to actively participate in partisan politics...
'The politicians should also stop politicising members of the disciplined forces,' the minister said.
In supplementary questions, Mmolotsi and the Leader of the Opposition, Botsalo Ntuane asked if the role of making political statements was the Commander's or the minister's."
