Mmegi Online :: BCP appoints Magama Executive Secretary








Magama is the former Secretary General of the Botswana National Front (BNF) who defected last year after irreversible disagreements with party president Duma Boko.

He was suspended alongside several other key BNF members.

In a country where defections have become routine, his appointment to the eminent BCP position comes as little surprise. Nevertheless, he was regarded as a big catch because in addition to having been Secretary General of the BNF, he has been an MP for Gaborone South.

Speaking to Mmegi this week, BCP Secretary General Kesitegile Gobotswanag said Magama had resumed his duties at the beginning of October and that his appointment had a tenure of 12 months.

Gobotswang added that the party's long-term plans were to have someone in Magama's new position on a fulltime basis as a means of maintaining stability and achieving greater progress.

He said Magama's appointment would bring valuable information and knowledge, considering that he had been active in politics for a long time and that he was going to spend much of his time working from the office.

In the meantime, Magama will not relinquish his position of Deputy Secretary General of the BCP, a duality that Gobotswang believes should give him a solid board in and outside the office.
