Dow is right

It doesn’t rain but pours at the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP), a party that is in majority in the National Assembly.

Just after controversially recalling Kgosi Mosadi Seboko from the membership of the Pan African Parliament (PAP), a woman politician, Unity Dow who declined the offer to fill the void created by the embarrassing decision to recall the Balete Paramount Chief, will soon be hauled before the party’s disciplinary committee.

It all happened at a supersonic speed, seemingly without consideration to the rights of individuals involved. In a democratic setup like Botswana, diversity of views is paramount as it also enriches dialogue. It’s shocking that the BDP leadership expected Dow to simply accept the PAP appointment without her giving it a thought first.
