Quote Of The Day: President Of Botswana Doesn’t Want You Short & Fat “Furniture Breaking” Broads As His First Lady

- By Bossip Staff

The president of Botswana is done sowing his royal oats and is looking to wife something up. However, he’s not interested in anyone with chubbylumpkins…only tall and slimmy-trimmy ladies need to apply to keep his royal penis clean:

President Ian Khama, 57, has never been married, but at a political party meeting last month he said his top requirement for a future wife is that she needs to be tall, slim and beautiful – in a country known for short, heavy set women. To drive the point home he pointed to the Assistant Minister of Local Government Botlhogile Tshreletso and said, “I don’t want one like this one. She may fail to pass through the door, breaking furniture with her heavy weight and even break the vehicle’s shock absorbers.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The crowd, including the minister who had been singled out, reportedly laughed at the president’s comments. Khama claims he’s been too busy running the country to find a wife, and has dispatched presidential aides to find a suitable mate. The president’s status as a bachelor is of general national concern. Khama, elected in 2009, is not only president, he’s also the chief of the Bamangwato people, Botswana’s largest ethnic group. Marriage is a requirement of tribal tradition, something that Khama, so far, has defied.

    • shytwin23

      He’s actually biracial. His mother is white and his father is black.

    • camsram

      his mama was white man

  • angie

    That attitude is why he is still a single. It’s one thing to have a preference. but to point someone out as an example, is just ugly. Not to mention, he is not the best looking cat around.


    nobody looking to be 1st lady’d by his old behind and live in that dusty a*s country.

  • bigb

    I don’t see what the problem is here? Every person has their own specific thoughts on what is/is not attractive. Maybe his comments might have not been politically correct and somewhat harsh, especially in his position but at least he is being honest and keeping it real.

    • Mrs. Rance

      He has every right to prefer a certain type (if he were actually interested in women) but he was way out of line for publicly humiliating that woman like that.

  • Sha

    What ever floats his boat…so you guys really think he’s gay? Just askin….

  • bigb

    It’s also funny to me that a major network would even report such a trivial news story such as this. Why are all the news stories of Africans/African Americans mostly negative in nature? People have to be careful sometimes and read in between the lines because the media/U.S Government tries to paint a negative picture of Africans/African Americans for their own political/financial purposes. Why is it that we never hear anything positive about any African leaders(Mandela excluded)unless it is unfavorable?

    • StuckInDaMatrix

      That’s because you have to realize there is an agenda going on behind the scenes that doesn’t include anything black or African. Realize that the eugenics movement is alive and well. Exterminate the genetics and whatever you don’t want doesn’t manifest. Research, Enlighten and Emancipate yourself

  • LindoKushle

    Im just trying to figure out how ABC researchers came to the conclusion that Tswana women are short and fat.

    • Mrs. Rance

      I was wondering that my dang self. I’m gonna have to do some research on that one.

    Is that Dave Chappelle walking next to him in the military graduation outfit?? lol

  • Didts*

    I’d like to know the same thing!!
    I’m Tswana myself and neither short or fat!

    • Zulu Princess

      C’mon guys get real, I’m South African and yall know how MAJORITY (not all) of us are built down here. & anyway heavy-set / thick or whatever isn’t an insult, it’s just an alternative shape, and if the man doesn’t dig it, that’s his prerogative.

  • gON dU it Den

    LMMFAO!!!!!!!!!! ….DEAD…

  • Jocasta

    So, he likes what he likes! What’s wrong with that? At least he’s being honest. If he don’t like Fat women he just don’t like them. Hell I do not like Fat men or for that matter.

  • uhh yeah ok

    meh, not any worse than whats said on here..

  • http://www.stewartsynopsis.com/Site%20Index.htm We"Blacks"AreTheREALHebrewIsraelites

    So put down the prevalent physiology of the Native women. For what? Why can’t someone state a preference without putting someone else down. Judging from HIS appearance since he likes to judge on others, this isn’t surprising in light of the fact that he isn’t even a “pure” blood African. He wants someone who looks like his mother and from his mothers homeland. Not someone who looks like the very people he’s supposed to lead, protect, and politically serve. No they are held up for ridicule instead. This man is ignorant and his perception is dirtier than the looks a Muslim gets at the airport.
    I think someone who is at the epicenter of the public eye in his country should have the good grace to act in an above board and civilized manner. Not talking about “fat chicks” like some inebriated, privileged, self absorbed frat boy. You may not like short women, but you need to GROW UP. You may not like heavy women…but consider the WEIGHT OF YOUR WORDS.
