This episode really comes across more personal than some of what the series offered and Michael was a good person to root for.
The Office of Botswana President Lieutenant-General Seretse Khama Ian Khama said the law would “take its course” against the individual or persons behind the circulation of a photoshopped image widely interpreted as depicting a naked Khama standing in front of Parliament on the 50th anniversary of the country’s independence.
The Office welcomed the widespread condemnation of the image by individuals “across society” as a demonstration that the country was united “in its diversity” with regards to upholding basic norms of human dignity.
However, Gaborone-based constitutional lawyer Mboki Chilisa told the local daily that there was nothing illegal or unconstitutional with the image as the constitution of the country guaranteed protection to both popular and unpopular forms of public expression.
Despite her condition they built a shelter and a fire right near a watering hole and a game trail, which is very dangerous because of the wildlife in the area.
Their first night was filled with the constant noises of animals using the watering hole, from elephants to hyenas.
Chilisa concluded that the image could also be interpreted as protected political speech and there were no reasonable grounds for it to be interpreted as factual.
n tonight's all new episode of "Naked and Afraid" survivalists Michael and Ashley were dropped into the excruciating heat of Botswana, Africa, where they were left to survive for three weeks fully naked.
In a statement, Khama’s office said it had noted “with concern and disappointment the circulation, through social media, of a photoshopped image of the President, which is by any standard offensive and derogatory in nature”.
“The laws and norms governing publication of offensive and libellous and/or maliciously false content on social media platforms are no different from that of any other media.
In this respect, we are aware and concerned about the wider trend of publishing offensive material through social media,” read part of the statement.
