Tension brews in Nata-Gweta

FRANCISTOWN: Nata-Gweta Member of Parliament (MP) Polson Majaga has reportedly embarked on a crusade to frustrate Dukwi councillor Thatayaone Kehitile’s bid to be elected Tutume sub-district council deputy chairperson.

Dukwi falls within the Nata-Gweta constituency. This week insiders alleged that Majaga views Kehitile as a threat to his political future. There are strong reports that Kehitile wants to challenge Majaga at the ruling party parliamentary primaries in a bid to secure candidacy for the 2024 general elections.

It has been widely speculated that Majaga feels that should Kehitile ascend to the position of deputy chairperson in the Tutume sub-district, the position is likely to give him a platform to best position himself for a triumph at the BDP parliamentary primaries in 2023. That is why many allege that Majaga is doing all he can to block Kehitile’s bid for the position of deputy sub-district council chairperson.
