It is not in the norm and culture of BOFEPUSU to always respond to newspaper articles that make insinuations and allegations against it.
We however would like to respond to this particular article titled “BOFEPUSU wants BOPEU President out” that appeared in the Botswana Guardian of 9th October 2015 as it has the potential to soil the relationship between the federation and one of its affiliates, Botswana Public Employees Union (BOPEU).
The article alleges and purports that the umbrella federation is meddling and interfering into the affairs of BOPEU by supporting one candidate for the Presidency of the union over the other.
The article however has not come up with concrete evidence to demonstrate incidences and instances where the federation has supported Comrade Seitiso over Comrade Motsamai.
We, as BOFEPUSU would like to dismiss these allegations with the strongest terms possible and would
We hope that this would suffice in explaining the position of the federation on this matter.
Tobokani Nicholas Rari,
Federation Secretary General
