Following a Botswana Congress Party (BCP) rally held in his Selebi-Phikwe West constituency on Saturday, the area Member of Parliament (MP) Dithapelo Keorapetse says he has no fear because his conscience is clear.

Keorapetse, who says he stands right on top of the truth, was expelled from the BCP in July after replacing BCP president Dumelang Saleshando, a coalition vice president, as the new Leader of Opposition (LOO) in Parliament.

On Saturday different speakers took turns to discredit the expelled Keorapetse as unfit to continue leading the people of Selebi-Phikwe West. Keorapetse is serving his second successive term as Phikwe West legislator. During the rally, Saleshando said Phikwe residents should go and reflect because in Keorapetse they have a confused legislator who has decided to look back like Lot’s wife.
