'Bank of Botswana says money was never stolen,' says Bridgette Motsepe-Radebe

Businesswoman Bridgette Motsepe-Radebe has called for an Interpol investigation into allegations that she has interfered in Botswana politics.

Earlier this year, Motsepe-Radebe was slapped with travel restrictions after the country accused her of being involved in a campaign to topple President Mokgweetsi Masisi.

She has denied allegations that she was involved in money laundering, illicit flows, regime change, supporting the opposition or terrorism in Botswana.

She joins Bongani Bingwa to chat about her latest call for an Interpol investigation.

Motsepe-Radebe says these allegations against her are saddening and are tarnishing her reputation.

She says the allegations that she allegedly helped to steal $10 billion from the Botswana government to finance a coupe, are false.

The Bank of Botswana was asked that question by parliamentarians whether P100 billion was stolen and it denied that the bank had that amount of money in its account in the first place.

She says Nedbank also conducted its own research and was unable to found that kind of amount connected to her.

Before I become a signatory of any amount that has been stolen, the Reserve Bank must agree that the alleged money must come into South Africa.
