FRANCISTOWN: Botswana Mine Workers Union (BMWU) has entered into strategic partnership with local and international organisations to transform itself.

Giving an address at the union’s general council meeting in Selibe-Phikwe recently, BMWU president Joseph Tsimako implored all union members to ditch political factions that ensued in the build up to the 2019 elective congress that ushered the new leadership for the greater good of the union.

“...I say to you that our administration is committed to delivering on the mandate you entrusted us with. I also implore those who were on the opposing side to leave the politics at the congress and focus on supporting the efforts of the leadership in transforming the Botswana Mine Workers Union. After all, unity is strength. The BMWU lost approximately 40 members across all branches during this period due to COVID-19. Since the end of the State of Public Emergency everyone is focusing on recovery, now and beyond. This has seen different entities coming up with innovative ways to survive the after effects of COVID-19, including the government,” Tsimako optimistically remarked.
