The party’s Secretary General, Ferdinard Kgosikoma, says no stone was left unturned. "Initially there were 371 candidates, but one had to be set aside because his membership was questioned, leaving 370 vying for council seats," Kgosikoma said.

Some of the more interesting contests involve the president of BNF Youth League, Councillor for Kang North Kemmonye Makatane, who will tussle it out with three other BNF council hopefuls, Joseph Thuku, Olivia Ngwamotsoko and Keotlhomile Pego. 

Several BNF youth league members will try their luck to represent in the next year’s general elections. Apart from Makatane, there is the party’s Secretary General, Arafat Khan, who has shown interest in the Borakalalo Ward in Molepolole against Baitshupile Khan.

Former BNFYL president, Tona Mooketsi, remains unopposed for the Mosanta Ward in Mochudi, as is Matlhogonolo Modiakgotla for Mantshwabisi and Kelekwang Mangwa for Matebele.

Mpho Morolong will be compete with Solomon Letshwiti and Gakeresepe Moepele for Boseja Central.

In Gaborone’s Old Naledi North, BNF youth league treasurer Shiny Modisane will have to overcome Joseph Kgannye and Othusitse Mmale. Kagiso Tlhutlwe, who is the youth league’s vice president, will be unopposed for the Village Ward, as is Tona Selala for Thamaga West Ward.

A tight contest is expected in Mmathethe where four candidates, Nancy Masilonyane, Saudile Mzuku, Tebogo Rasesiya and Samuel Morolong will compete with one another.

In Oodi, Thato Motsamai, Johannes Motsamai and Molefi Motsamai will battle it out for the council seat while Mosala Phokontsi and Molatlhegi Jautse will tussle for Sikwane/Mabalane.

Said Kgosikoma: "We can only hope for a smooth operation during the primary elections, but our main worried is transport for voters."
