Kanjabanga drops court case against BNF

Politician and lawyer Gabriel Kanjabanga, who was recently expelled from the Botswana National Front (BNF) alongside Lemogang Ntime, says they have received positive feedback from the rallies they have held to sensitise people about what is really happening within the BNF.

Mmegi Online :: Kanjabanga drops court case against BNF








Speaking to Mmegi yesterday, Kanjabanga said that they have already held meetings in Old Naledi and Gabane, and are planning to visit Kanye, Thamaga and Molepolole next."We have had a very positive response, people come to listen, and they think that what we are saying is reasonable," he said yesterday.

Kanjabanga said both Ntime and he still consider themselves members of the BNF.  "There are people that can be expelled from the BNF, but I don't think [Ntime] and I are those types of people.  You can take us out of the BNF, but you can't take BNF out of us.  It would be like saying you are expelling [Daniel] Kwelagobe from the BDP," he said. He added that he is not considering joining any other political parties.He further added that only Batswana can determine his political future.

Kanjabanga said the truth of his and Ntime's assertions, that the BNF is being treated secondary to the umbrella party project, is reflected by the BNF's recent loss in the Lenganeng by-elections. Contrary to what he had said at a press conference earlier this month, he now said that they will go to the High Court to challenge their dismissal.Kanjabanga and Ntime were expelled from the BNF at the party's national congress in Mahalapye. 

However, they have challenged the expulsion and have called it unconstitutional.At a Tlokweng press conference two weeks ago the duo stated that they will approach the High Court for recourse. However, he has since shown no hurry to go to the High Court.
