Challenging moment for Balopi


FRANCISTOWN: Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) secretary-general (SG), Mpho Balopi reportedly intends to contest for the position of chairperson in the party, and it is clear that victory for him will be a huge personal triumph.

On the contrary, a loss for him might mark the beginning of his political downfall. The former Minister of Employment, Labour Productivity and Skills Development (MESLD), who has fallen out with President Mokgweetsi Masisi, might find it difficult to master victory against incumbent chair, Slumber Tsogwane, who is also Vice President (VP).

The BDP SG has remained mum on speculation that he intends challenging Tsogwane but there is swelling speculation that he has already started campaigning for the position. It was initially thought that Balopi will defend his position as SG, but indications are that the BDP intends to make the post a full time paid job, which might not be attractive for Balopi.
