The powers that be want to get rid of him because he doesn’t want the BDP to abuse the BNYC,” said a source close to the events.

He said one of the reasons why Sibanda fell out of favour with the BDP could be traced to ‘One Youth, One Vote’ campaign in Gaborone for the general elections last year. “The BNYC was approached by musician Odirile ‘Vee’ Sento of Black Money Makers (BMM) last year to fund the ‘One Youth, One Vote’ campaign billed for October 18-19, 2014,” said the source.
