“One of the heart breaking issues is that the national pass rate in Botswana for the BGCSE is lower than the Zimbabwe equivalent despite that the poor country is devastated by an incessant economic meltdown,” Boko said. 

He said that in Zimbabwe the top schools in the Cambridge Overseas School Certificate attained 100% whereas St Joseph’s College here, which was declared number one in the recent BGCSE, had a pass rate of 47%. 

He said that the school environment provided by the BDP government is not conducive for learning around the country. 

He added that some students are not provided with food at school and some are continuously given samp for breakfast even though they are taught about the importance of having a balanced meal. 

He said that schools experience shortage of books and chairs, which disadvantage students to

pass their examinations. 

Boko blamed the voters for eternal poverty in the country because some people still continue to vote for the BDP even though it is ill-treating them. 

He quoted Martin Luther King Junior: “A man cannot ride your back unless you bent it”.  He explained that no one has power over another unless they are given the right to do so and reminded voters that the power is in their hands to change their standard of living. 

He said that if the UDC is given an opportunity to rule, they are going to create 1,000 permanent jobs in the first 12 months of their rule. 

He implored Batswana upon the weekend rally to register for the election and advised people to keep their identity and registration cards safe until the elections later this year.
