Several MPs in Botswana have been caught breaking their self-isolation instructions and have now been placed in supervised quarantine.

On Thursday, all parliamentarians and President Mokgweetsi Masisi were asked to quarantine for 14 days after a health worker who had been screening them for the coronavirus herself tested positive.

However a government statement said some of the MPs had regrettably been seen shopping in supermarkets.

They have been moved from their homes to a supervised government facility.

The statement did not say how many lawmakers had broken the rules.

Botswana has reported 13 coronavirus cases and one death.
