SELEBI-PHIKWE: The election of councillor Tebogo Matlhogonolo to the mayoral office in Selebi-Phikwe last week has deterred oppositions' efforts to snatch the seat from the ruling party.

Matlhogonolo triumphed over the Botswana Congress Party's Leungo Mathaio. Since the beginning of last year, opposition councilors made it clear that they intend to remove former mayor Godfrey Mbaiwa from office.They announced this plan during their first press conference held at Bosele Hotel early last year.

The former mayor was however re-elected for the second term in office in May, until he voluntarily announced his resignation from the position on December 31st.  Opposition councillors from the Botswana Movement for Democracy and Botswana Congress Party distanced themselves from the impasse that had engulfed the council and discredited Mbaiwa's leadership.
