MAUN: Former Okavango Member of Parliament (MP) Bagalatia Arone says he will contest for the constituency if the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) opts out of the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC).

Arone, who has since joined the Botswana Patriotic Front (BPF), was introduced to UDC members at a rally here on Saturday. “Arone was an evangelist sent to spread the word but he ran away and was afraid of the mammoth task he was given.

He went to the wrong place but while he was there he realised that he needs to come to the right place,” UDC president Duma Boko told Maun residents. Arone won the constituency under the BCP in 2014 but later defected to the ruling Botswana Democratic Party just before the 2019 General Elections. He lost the area to the UDC’s Kenny Kapinga in 2019.
