Butale held a press conference just before the Independence holiday to announce his return to the BPF top seat after a long suspension, a move which was not welcomed by Lesang. Upon his return, Butale led the NEC which made major decisions amongst others reversing some suspensions and postponing the elective congress that was slated for the end of this month.
