Tawele gets nod to contest BCP primaries


FRANCISTOWN: The Botswana Congress Party (BCP) has relented and allowed Interest David Tawele to contest the Francistown South constituency primaries early next month. He will face-off with BCP organising secretary, Vain Mamela.

Tawele was initially barred from contesting the primaries after the party said he had become inactive following the 2009 elections.

The report recommended that primaries be held after the commission found that Tawele was active in the party after the 2009 general elections,” BCP secretary general, Dr Kesitegile Gobotswang, said yesterday.
