Morwaeng, DK ruction may hurt BDP


The war of attrition that is playing itself out in Molepolole South is once again likely to cost the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) elections, if it is not addressed.

The constituency has been a BDP stronghold for years; precisely  since independence and the party only lost to the opposition in 2014. In 2014, Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) candidate, Tlamelo Mmatli got 5, 967 votes, ousting longtime BDP Member of Parilament, Daniel Kwelagobe who trailed with  5, 580 votes.

Kwelagobe’s supporters and some who lost in recent Bulela Ditswe are said to be still angry with the party for their leader’s loss.  From 2014, there have been tensions amongst some members accusing each other of conniving with the opposition, especially UDC.
