The Monitor :: Irregularities Delay Jwaneng/Mabutsane BNF Results








The Monitor has learnt that the counting was immediately stopped after some polling agents found some irregularities on the ballot papers.

This is not the first time that the results for primary elections never got announced in some wards due to irregularities as the same mistake happened at Kanye South constituency.

At Kanye South about two wards were forced to go for re-run after there were complaints of irregularities also. “The numbers registered for Sekoma ward is high and BNF has never got voted by that number. In other wards counting had already started and some being done.  It was found that some people in Khakhea ward voted twice in two cells. The sitting MP, Shawn Ntlhaile has been losing in some of the wards. The person who was leading is Celsius Rambe,” the source said. Rambe and Tsietsi Oodira-Kwenje were challenging Ntlhaile in the primaries. 

The BNF spokesperson, Justin Hunyepa said they were still waiting for a report from the election officers. “They have not

yet given us an update on the results. I am not aware that the counting has been stopped in some wards. I had thought that counting is still on going,” Hunyepa said. The MP for Jwaneng/Mabutsane Ntlhaile confirmed that the counting of the results was stopped in one of the ward.

“I cannot say much on the matter. We are waiting for a report from the national election committee on the matter,” he said. Meanwhile, at Moselewapula ward in Gaborone, elections were postponed to next week after the sitting councillor, Sergeant Kgosietsile made an application in court so that he could be declared as an unopposed candidate.

High Court judge, Justice Omphemetse Motumise made a ruling that Kgosietsile should cover the costs of the elections in the agreed amount of P2,500 that was supposed to be paid before the close of business last Friday.

Both attorneys for the party and Kgosietsile were ordered to file their heads of argument on or before August 22.
