Johannesburg - Businesswoman Bridget Motsepe-Radebe has likened allegations that she helped steal $10-billion from Botswana government to finance a coup in that country as a crazy mystery with the makings of a James Bond movie.
Motsepe-Radebe, who is married to Minister of Energy Jeff Radebe said it's was not even possible that such money would have been stolen from Botswana's Central Bank as the alleged loot would be around 60% of the value of that country's economy.
Another thing, she wanted to know, was why if she had brought that kind of money in the country, the South African Reserve Bank had not noticed and said something.
Speaking to Radio 702's Bongani Bingwa on Monday morning, Motsepe-Radebe said parliamentarians recently asked the Governor of the Bank of Botswana whether any money was stolen.
However, she said, the governor denied that any money had been stolen, adding that the central bank never had that kind of money in it's account in the fist place.
