Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) chairmanship candidate Ramadeluka Seretse has denied that vice President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s supporters manhandled him at Mmadinare yesterday morning.

But Mmegi has since established that the incident allegedly occurred when Seretse attempted to gain entry into an exclusive and affluent campsite reserved only for Masisi supporters. The well-secured camp dubbed ‘Camp Dubai’ is located on the outskirts of Mmadinare, a few kilometers away from the community hall where the elective congress will be held. The campsite is fenced and manned by security personnel.  It has a large marquee tent, with 20 camping tents and mobile toilets.

One of the delegates, who witnessed the clash, Boss Jerry, a Gaborone Bonnington North delegate, said that they received calls from other delegates who told them that Masisi’s supporters were holding them hostage inside the camp. He said they drove to the campsite but were refused entry by the security personnel.
