Kapinga was expelled along other four BCP MPs. The MPs were expelled after they openly sided with the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) leader Duma Boko who has fallen out with the BCP leader Dumelang Saleshando.

The BCP is part of the UDC together with the Botswana People’s Party and Botswana National Front (BNF). This week, the BCP issued a statement indicating that Kapinga has since applied for readmission into the party and his application is being considered.
