 Judgment 13 December 1999: Separate opinion of Judge Shigeru Oda (Botswana/Namibia)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
There was no disagreement between Botswana and Namibia that they should rely on the 1890 Treaty, which determined the line of separation of the sphere of influence between Germany and Great Britain as the centre of the "main channel" of the Chobe River.
The Presidents of Botswana and Namibia were in agreement that the boundary should be determined as the "main channel" of the Chobe River as provided for in the 1890 Anglo-German Treaty.
This confusion of the issues brought jointly by Botswana and Namibia to the Court puts the latter in an extremely difficult situation in the handling of this "case"; in particular, because the "case" is not based on a unilateral application but submitted by the agreement of both Parties.

The anger of the opposition stems from the former president’s decision to launch the ruling Botswana Democratic Party’s (BDP) parliamentary candidates in Gaborone Central and Selebi-Phikwe East constituencies.
Protestations from the opposition seem to suggest that enjoyment of the said benefits is a condition for a retired president to sever links with his or her political party.
It beats logic why the opposition parties choose to single out former presidents as the only pensioners who are not supposed to enjoy their constitutional right to freely associate with a political party of their choice.
