Political funding fundamentals must be done right

In recent days, discussions about political party funding in Botswana have sparked concern and reflection among citizens across the nation.

These conversations, led by voices like the Botswana Congress Party (BCP), highlight the urgent need for transparency and fairness in resource distribution. As Batswana, we must engage with these issues and advocate for a democratic process that genuinely mirrors our values and aspirations.

At the core of this matter is the principle of equal representation. Political party funding is not just about allocating financial resources; it's about ensuring every voice in our democracy has the chance to be heard. However, recent revelations and suspicions of secretive dealings and preferential treatment in fund allocation cast a shadow over the integrity of our political system. Such concerns strike at the heart of our democratic ideals, questioning the accountability of those governing on our behalf.
