BOFEPUSU, UDC Forces Lock Horns At BOPEU Congress

BOSETU deputy secretary general, Mogomotsi Motshegwa, stood up with Setswana eloquence in what many later viewed as an attempt to sway the BOPEU Congress delegates into rejecting anyone who would want BOPEU to pull out of the BOFEPUSU.

With great oratory Motshegwa,  used a parable of three candles individually tagged love, faith and hope. They were being blown hither and thither by the wind, resulting in a darkened house. In this parable, Motshegwa said there was only one candle left, the candle of hope, which withstood the wind and promised to light the other candles again. Motshegwa had made his point, and the congress delegates responded with a thunderous applause.

Motshegwa used the platform of offering the traditional solidarity message, to remind the BOPEU Congress of what he saw as the danger that was not supposed to be allowed to prevail. Presidential candidate, Sikalame Seitiso’s campaign resonated well with Motshegwa’s rallying call. Seitiso campaigned against the idea of taking BOPEU out of BOFEPUSU, while the president Andrew Motsamai favoured the move.
