Mooketsi Kgosibodiba was hanged at Gaborone Central Prison "in the early morning hours", the prison said, in the first execution since President Mokgweetsi Masisi was elected to office in October.
In 2017, Kgosibodiba received a death sentence for the 2012 murder of his employer and his appeal was dismissed last year.
