The Botswana Democratic Party's (BDP) President Mokgweetsi Masisi has told members that the party congress will be held in August this year. The mandate for the party central committee has long expired but could not be renewed by electing new party central committee members due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When addressing the members over the weekend at Shoshong and Mahalapye (SHOMA) regional congress, Masisi said the central committee is planning the party national elective congress where free and fair elections will be held. “Our National Council will be held in July and therefore by August, we will be able to hold the congress. I hope all lower structures would have held their congresses.

All our congresses should be peaceful and elections should be free and fair,” he said. This was also confirmed by party spokesperson Kagelelo Kentse that indeed President Masisi has announced congress. Meanwhile, the BDP National Youth Executive Council chairperson Karabo Gomotsegang said their congress will be held by the beginning of July if things go according to plan.
