Khama loses grip on BDP


FRANCISTOWN: At the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) congress in July, President Ian Khama issued a stern warning to party members to desist from making statements that tarnish the name of the party.

He was also opposed to those who openly attack their BDP colleagues. Khama told the Mmadinare congress that he would not hesitate to discipline any member who criticises the party in public.

Khama said that where members differed they should not do so in public and the media lest the party lose respect from the right-thinking members of the society. However, nearly five months after Khama warned members, it appears that the trend of attacking the party in public continues unabated.
