No reconciliation in sight for BPF


The national executive committee (NEC) of the Botswana Patriotic Front (BPF) has not made any attempt to reconcile with their president Biggie Butale ahead of a court trial, at which they are expected to defend themselves why they cannot be imprisoned for contempt of court.

The court action came after some members of the NEC held a meeting, without Butale’s consent contrary to the High Court judgment which had stated that NEC meetings should be called by Butale.

“We have not held any meeting or reached out to the party president since the court case, which continues today (Friday). I don’t think there would be any meeting before the court case,” the BPF vice president Mephato Reatile said in an interview on Wednesday. At the said meeting, the NEC suspended Butale for 90 days, which was then reversed by the Lobatse High Court.
