The Telegraph News Paper of Wednesday 26 May 2010 Volume 2/ Issue 20, carried an article on page 9 entitled “It’s About Time We Interrogate The Opposition Political Parties” by Dr Thapelo Otlogetswe.  In that article the writer made a statement that there are members of the Botswana Defense Force (BDF) who are “paid less than Special Constables in the Police”. 

The Ministry of Defence, Justice and Security wishes to state for a fact that there is no member of the Botswana Defence Force (BDF) who is “paid less than Special Constables in the Police” as alleged by the statement. Therefore the statement in the article referred to above is not correct and is misleading.

The lowest rank in the BDF including recruits is paid a salary/training allowance which is higher than that paid to Special Constables in the Police.
