It has also been widely reported that Moatlhodi prefers Medupi as his successor ahead of another parliamentary hopeful Andy Boatile. Both Boatile and Medupi, who are councillors in the constituency, are expected to contest for the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) primaries in Tonota later this year, in a bid to book candidacy for the next general election. Medupi, who has made his parliamentary ambitions no secret, has also been a regular feature during activities organised by Moatlhodi in Tonota.
