The government of Botswana has described the burning of a vehicle and house belonging to the country’s minister of local government and rural development in the town of Serowe as being politically motivated. News24 reports that Serowe is the largest urban village in Botswana and is situated in the country’s central district and is also the political base of former president Ian Khama. Since leaving office four years ago, Khama and his successor, President Mokgweetsi Masisi, have been at loggerheads.
