OP response to the report in Mmegi of Friday 06 August on rumored replacement of the Attorney General

The Office of the President would like to inform the public that the report by Mmegi alleging that the Attorney General, Dr, Athaliah Molokomme, is to be replaced by Mr. Parks Tafa are false and unfounded.

We wish to express our concern at the fact that the reporter concerned did not take the trouble to contact the Office of the President, who is the appointing authority for this high constitutional office, for verification of the so called rumour.

This office hereby cautions all concerned against the spreading of false rumours and on such matters of public importance, and which are likely to mislead the public.  Finally, we wish to advise the public that there is no vacancy in the office of Attorney General, as it is currently occupied by Dr. Athaliah Molokomme.
