MASUNGA: Andy Boatile retained his position as the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) Youth Wing (BDPWY) chairman, at the controversy-ridden elections on Saturday in Masunga.

Boatile defeated business man Thabo Autlwetse and Mpho Setuke who was considered a dark horse at the elections. Boatile managed 212 votes while his closest rival Autlwetse could only attract 140 voters. A paltry 51 voters went for Setuke, with three votes being spoiled.
