Complainant in BDP Serowe matter fails to honour hearing


Scores of Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) activists who were charged for illegal gathering in Serowe in February are likely to go without being punished after the complainant in the matter failed to honour the hearing yesterday.

Mmegi is informed that the complainant, Steady Sethaba was not available when the case was called hence it could not proceed. However, the National Disciplinary Committee chairperson, Damien Thapa told the accused members that the verdict would be out today.  

“We were called in the same board room and the name of the complainant was called three times but he did not show up. No charge was read to us, or anything said. Rather the chairperson told us that the judgement will be out tomorrow [meaning today]. At this point we do not know what to say because the case did not proceed,” councillor Foster Seretse said.
