BPF factions talk peace

Elsewhere in this edition, we carry a story that suggests that opposition Botswana Patriotic Front (BPF) leadership initiated a move to go to South Africa to negotiate a peace deal with the party’s patron and former president Ian Khama who is alleged to be readying himself to take over the presidency of the party.

There were threats purportedly made by supporters of Khama who wanted him to decamp from the BPF with all his supporters literally leaving just a shell of the party with Butale.

Khama is believed to the thread that is holding the BPF together.
