BDP aims to retain Gaborone constituencies


Newly elected chairperson of Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) Gaborone Region, Lepsy Mosope says the new committee members aim to retain all the five capital’s constituencies they had won in the 2019 general elections.

Mosope told The Monitor their objective is to ensure that they increase the numbers of BDP councillors or win all council seats in Gaborone.

“As the BDP, we can do all this if we are one and work together. Our mandate as the region is to get updates on our structures and also check if everything is done correctly. We are going to work hand-in-hand with the five constituency branches to ensure that party structures are active,” he said. “The key issue that is ahead of us is the membership drive increase. For us to achieve membership drive [results we want], we need to have a strong team from both branches and dedicated members who have a desire to see their party growing.”
