It's Worth Probing BPF Weekend Fiasco!

Over the weekend members of the new kid on the block, Botswana Patriotic Front (BPF) found gates for the venue they had booked at Tsholofelo Community Hall locked.

BPF claimed they had booked and paid for the hall. The party had to find an alternative venue at Maharaj Conference Centre. On the same day, former president Ian Khama was to host a soup kitchen at Block 6 Park. The park was also ‘mysteriously’ closed, allegedly as per orders from ‘authorities’. The political space in the country is currently volatile, as different political parties seem to intensify campaigns to outdo each other in the build up to 2019 general elections.

There are many incidents taking place across the political divide, with politicians accusing each other of sabotage, sometimes true and in yet other case imaginary. Botswana is known to be a peaceful, and tolerant nation, where siblings can subscribe to different political parties, but still get along as a family. Recently, there seem to be a change in the atmosphere, as the bickering amongst politicians has turned personal, with some classifying other arguments as pettiness and not contribute towards the development of the country.
