Barely a week since he announced his return as the Botswana Patriotic Front (BPF) president, Biggie Butale has started cracking the whip.

Butale, who was suspended by the party last year, has begun his second tenure at the BPF by making a lot of changes among others suspending BPF spokesperson Lawrence Ookeditse, presidential aspirant Samson Moyo Guma, and former Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) Francistown South branch chairperson, Ford Moiteela. Butale, who is backed by BPF patron and former president Ian Khama has suspended members from team Guma amid tensions currently rocking the BPF.

The decisions were taken yesterday by the national executive committee (NEC) of the BPF.
