The businesses are believed to be refusing to give him shares in their operations.
Masisi is allegedly using his rela- tion to the president to bully some of the companies offering services at the mine. Masisi who has since atly denied all the claims, is said to be threatening to have businesses that refuse to o er him shares kicked out of the mine premises and denied business by other companies contracted by the mine for various services.
“He is harassing people in Jwaneng mine town who have gone there to do business with contractors doing jobs for the mine. He demands shares on projects and threatens that if they don’t he’ll send them packing and will never do business with Debswana or any contractors within the mine,” said a source. e matter has since reached the Debswana leadership.
Debswana Diamond Company Corporate A airs Manager- External, Agatha Sejoe said while they cannot discuss issues relating to individual employees in the media for legal and security reasons, “we can con rm that where allegations are made of miscon- duct against any employee/ s we review these for veracity and action where indicated.” Sejoe said the company has a strict governance policy that is closely monitored and frequently tracked.
Furthermore, the company’s poli- cies do not have exceptions and are indiscriminately applied irrespective of gender, creed, or blood relations, Sejoe said in response to a questionnaire.
However, communications in the form of emails, letters and WhatsApp messages that were seen by this publi- cation depict in ghting between Masisi and one of the businesses operating the Debswana Golf Club Kitchen.
Masisi who is also the Director of Redlos Global Group clashed with owners of Do it Best Group Naomi ebe and Beulah Mapitse over the running of the Golf Club Kitchen busi- ness which caters for the employees of Lucient Procurement Engineering.
At one- point Lucient wrote both parties requesting a meeting to resolve the di erences since the company did not know who exactly they were deal- ing with. In one of the communica- tions, Masisi requested management fees from Do it Best.
