TONOTA: Tonota Member of Parliament (MP) Pono Moatlhodi has heightened speculation surrounding his political future.

It was previously speculated that Moatlhodi intends not to contest the 2024 General Election when his term comes to an end. He was said to be vilely campaigning for Baemedi Medupi, who is the chairperson of the ruling party for the Francistown region.

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.
