BCP youth defies executive committee

While the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) executive committee is due to meet to decide whether the party will participate in the upcoming Goodhope/Mabule constituency by-election, the party youth league insists that BCP will field a candidate.

Last week, the executive committee resolved that the southern region, will meet on June 13 to discuss the issue and others concerning the congress and the final decider would be made by the executive on June 18. Yesterday the Botswana Congress Party Youth League (BCPYL) released a statement reiterating its position that the party should field a candidate for the Goodhope-Mabule Constituency.

The constituency fell vacant recently after James Mathokgwane of the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) resigned. He has since taken up a position at SPEDU, the regional development agency for Selebi Phikwe. The BCPYL spokesperson, Aldrine Madigele said they were aware that events’ surrounding this unlucky constituency makes the field fertile for a serious party with tangible and sound policies.
