Mmegi Online :: Kokorwe still to decide next move








Kokorwe, who has quit active politics, was appointed to Cabinet in April last year in a reshuffle that saw her replace Moeng Pheto. She will leave her position after the October 16 general elections.

The ex-Kweneng South Member of Parliament (MP) made it clear when she was re-elected in 2004 that she would not seek another term.

Talk was rife that she would campaign for the Speaker of Parliament position but she has since decided against standing.

Kokorwe told Mmegi yesterday that she would weigh her options if offers come in, but she emphasised that her next posting would be outside politics."I have resigned from active politics. I have not decided on my next move but I will consider whatever comes," Kokorwe said.
