The Alliance for Progressives (AP) cannot unswervingly comment to the prospects of working with the Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) in the near future.

This is according to the party spokesperson Mmaotho Segotso. The AP is a splinter party from the BMD. The AP was formed after a bloody fight among BMD members in Bobonong five years ago. At the moment, the AP is working on a cooperation model for the 2024 General Elections with the Botswana Congress Party (BCP).

The newly elected BMD president Nehemiah Modubule recently expressed desire to explore a working arrangement with the AP and the BCP at the 2024 General Elections. There is no doubt that the BMD Bobonong infighting that led to the split is still on the minds of many AP members and will be replayed in the years to come. The fight was between a faction that was led by AP president Ndaba Gaolathe and another faction led by Sydney Pilane. Modubule, who was then the party chairperson, was fighting in Pilane’s corner. There has always been doubts that the AP and the BMD can work together based on their historic past linked to events in Bobonong.
