PALAPYE: Botswana Public Employees Union (BOPEU) has received a pat on the back for having achieved substantial growth this year.

Officially opening the elective congress, Andrew Motsamai said the membership of BOPEU has gone a little over 30,000, an unprecedented figure in the country.  Motsamai said that this feat alone is worth celebrating.
