Kesupile could jump


Kanye South Member of Parliament, Abram Kesupile could be on his way out of the Botswana National Front (BNF).

He confirmed to this publication that he was currently consulting his constituents on whether he should stay or go.

“I am still considering whether to contest as independent candidate or not. I have not finalised on the matter. It is not true that I have already registered with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) as independent candidate. Consultations with my constituents are on going.  I am a BNF member in good standing and my constituents might encourage me to stay in the party. There is nothing wrong with someone consulting because I do not tarnish the name of the party in anyway,” Kesuple said.  He said his decision whether to quit or not would be known soon.  Kesupile lost BNF primary elections to Billy Phologolo last year. Apparently Kesupile did not take the loss well. Mmegi is informed that since then, the MP has not been active in the party. Phologolo got 1,078 votes, Tiroyaone Khuto got 661 votes, Osenotse Mabote got 416 votes while Kesupile got 799 votes.
