Goodhope-Mabule voters leave Masisi baffled


The Vice President Mokgweetsi Masisi is still reeling in shock over what he calls “the type of people” who voted for Umbrella for Democratic Chance (UDC) Goodhope-Mabule MP, James Mathokgwane, in the last general elections.

Speaking at a political rally over the weekend in Goodhope, to launch Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) council candidate, Kopo Mononi, Masisi said he was hurt by the loss suffered by his cabinet colleague Kitso Mokaila at the hands of Mathokgwane. He said he would never rest until Mokaila, who bounced back to Parliament through special nomination, is voted back as an elected MP.

“This is one of the hardest working men that the party needs at all times. He is a hard worker in his ministerial post and he always ensures that his ministry delivers. Hate or love him, all presidents like a minister who knows what he is doing. I don’t understand why people can vote a person of Mathokgwane’s calibre than Mokaila,” Masisi said.
