BDP beefs up communications sub-committee


President of the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP), Mokgweetsi Masisi has increased communications and international relations subcommittee members from 12 to 15.

Chairperson of the committee, Kagelelo Kentse has retained his position. Mmegi has observed that the committee has not changed much except for the fact that it has brought in three new members. The new members are Michael Dignash Morapedi, Robert Panzirah and Ishmael Metlha Mokwena. Old members of the committee are Tumy Modise who retained her position as secretary, Dennis Mmolai, Michael Hall, Godfrey Ganetsang, Thundie Nshakashogwe, Dumani Bushe, Kabelo Masvingo, Selwana Kesebonye, Warona Mosielele, Desmond Kabo, McDonald Peloetletse and Dumani Bushe Koketso.

Commenting on the increase of members of the committee that he leads Kentse revealed that the committee had been operating with 11 members and the move to increase its membership came after they made a request through the office of the party secretary general to increase the number to 15. “This request was informed by our desire to increase capacity and bring diverse skills into the committee. We also wanted to ensure that each member is assigned to each region of the BDP, in all 14 regions. This will help with focus and commitment as compared to one individual looking after two regions. One is bound to suffer. The campaign for the 2024 General Election will be more demanding and we want to have the ground covered very well,” Kentse said. He further said the diverse skills they have in the committee from communications, public relations, marketing, politics and radio will assist them with compiling a robust communication plan towards the 2024 General Election. Kentse also said his committee members have a sole priority of ensuring that the BDP retains power in 2024 and beyond.

Bravo police for prompt action

It is also hurting that whilst we all know that the Botswana Police Service (BPS) is charged functionally with the duties to investigate all forms of crime, some locals have resorted to taking the law into their own hands. It is very wrong to do that. There is also a possibility that one may wrongfully take the life of a person in the process, unless it is a justifiable case of self-defence. Recently, in the city of Francistown, some locals found...
