FRANCISTOWN: Botswana Congress Party (BCP) parliamentary candidate for Nata-Gweta in the 2014 general elections, Ditiro Majadibodu has dismissed allegations that he wants to leave the party.

Majadibodu made the remarks in an interview yesterday. In an audiotape of a secret meeting organised by some BCP operatives and the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) members recently, Majadibodu’s name was mentioned among BCP members who wanted to join the BDP. Apparently Majadibodu, who was not part of the secret meeting, is disgruntled about how certain things are done at BCP.  In the leaked tape, Majadibodu alleged that some of his constituents felt that he could win the Nata-Gweta constituency under the BDP banner.

But yesterday he said: “I have not thought about leaving the party. I remain a very staunch BCP member. I know that there is no permanent political home, but I have not reconsidered my political affiliation.
