'They are two-mouthed giants'


Umbrella Democratic Change (UDC) leader, Duma Boko says Botswana Congress Party (BCP) president, Dumelang Saleshando and the party's secretary-general, Goretetse Kekgonegile went behind UDC's back and proved to be two-mouthed giants.

UDC took a decision last weekend in Palapye to suspend the duo from any and all activities of or for and on behalf of the UDC, pending disciplinary proceedings which will commence and be concluded within three months of the date of the decision. He said they took this decision to protect the UDC.

“What Saleshando and Kekgonegile did was put down the UDC. What they did was equal to standing on the streets and ridiculing the UDC by even saying we cannot replace President Mokgweetsi Masisi with another Masisi. Most of these demeaning words go to the same voters we want voting for us in 2024. This is unacceptable because we are the campaigners of the UDC who ask for people’s votes and we want to show Batswana the worth of the UDC,” he said. Boko said the suspended duo of Saleshando and Kekgonegile destroyed and belittled the coalition, and therefore they have burned the UDC house down. Boko added that both Saleshando and Kekgonegile were given a chance to apologise which they failed.
