FRANCISTOWN: One may be not off the mark to say that Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) primary elections are usually associated with ructions that lead some of its cadres to stand as independent candidates during general elections.

But lo and behold, Tshwenyego Mbise, the former campaign aide of Tati East Member of Parliament (MP), Samson Moyo Guma is challenging his former colleague for the coveted position of the area MP during this year’s general elections. Surprisingly, Mbise was not one of the aspiring candidates who challenged Guma during the BDP’s primary elections last year.

Asked by The Monitor what has now changed, which aroused his interest to challenge Guma, Mbise responded: “Guma has poor leadership qualities and lacks manners. He also failed to address a lot of pertinent issues that are affecting people in our constituency”.
