FRANCISTOWN: Francistown mayor, Sylvia Muzila, is expected to hold a meeting with Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) councillors she has accused of threatening to oust her as mayor.

The BDP Francistown regional committee has arranged the meeting, which is expected to take place on Saturday.  BDP Francistown chairperson, Sabelo Matikiti yesterday confirmed that the regional leadership would hold a meeting over the weekend to discuss the recent complaints raised by Muzila to the party, and reach a final decision on the matter. The weekend meeting will be a follow-up to another one which was held last Saturday when the regional committee met with Muzila to discuss her concerns regarding councillors she alleged want to oust her through a motion of no confidence.

Matikiti however refused to discuss the agenda of the upcoming meeting or even reveal the identities of those who will be in attendance, stating that it will be an internal matter.
