SEROWE: In a significant shift, the Botswana Patriotic Front (BPF) is now considering a pact with the Umbrella Democratic Change (UDC), rather than remaining in the current coalition. BPF held its meeting on Saturday afternoon at Seiswane Hall in Ramakolo ward.

This decision was made by the party’s leadership, who are concerned that the current coalition arrangement is not working as intended. Some of the UDC affiliates include the Alliance for Progressives (AP), Botswana People’s Party (BPP), and Botswana National Front (BNF).

BPF President Mephato Reatile admitted this in an interview on Sunday. “It is true the BPF leadership from all party structures met yesterday to introspect on our relationship with the UDC. This was after we received so many complaints from party structures that were threatening the party’s stability,” he said.
