FRANCISTOWN: Defiant best describes Reverend Boy Farai Bonyongo who, after losing the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) primary elections, chose to become an independent parliamentary candidate for Tati West constituency.

“I was chosen by the people to represent them at the upcoming 2014 general elections. Even when I was defeated at Bulela Ditswe, I still chose to become an independent candidate because the people chose me,” he says.

Reverend Boy Farai Bonyongo is one of the four candidates in Tati West Constituency. The others are Philip Bulawa of the Botswana Congress Party (BCP), Richard Gudu of the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) and Reverend Biggie Butale of the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP).  He says his advantage is that he knows the constituency, a significant upper hand, as he believes for one to win Tati West constituency, one needs to know and understand its terrain.
