Failed BCP, AP talks glory for Boko


FRANCISTOWN: The leader of the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC), Duma Boko, recently took advantage of the chaos concerning the Botswana Congress Party (BCP), Alliance for Progressives (AP) and Botswana Labour Party (BLP) over cooperation talks.

Boko upped the ante during the launch of the UDC candidate for the Mapoka-Nlaphkwane by-election, Nebulani Lenyatso over the past weekend. During the launch, an animated Boko told attendees that it was only a matter of time before the AP joins the UDC.

Boko said: “I am glad to say that some of our former partners who had chosen the wrong route are returning to the UDC. The AP is returning to the UDC and we are telling them that their seats are where they left them.” The UDC leader added that the return of the AP to the UDC is very significant as it could lead to the removal of the BDP from power in the 2024 General Election.
