Suspended Botswana Public Employees Union (BOPEU) president, Masego Mogwera says she is shocked that the union leadership went ahead and fired her while court has ordered that activities be stopped until the finalisation of the matter.

This came after BOPEU congress on Saturday in Palapye took a decision to expel Mogwera from the union. Those who wanted her to be expelled were 134, those who were against the idea were 34 while 26 were neutral. BOPEU infightings started last year immediately after congress.

“I heard those rumours. To my understanding, the matter is still before the courts and it’s shocking that the leadership had gone behind the court to try to fire me,” Mogwera said.
