Botlogile Tshireletso, Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) former Women’s Wing chairperson for six years (or three terms in succession), holds the party’s most powerful organ in high esteem even in her retirement. Mmegi Staffer RYDER GABATHUSE speaks to Tshireletso on the eve of the Wing’s 17th elective congress

Tshireletso is an indefatigable fighter whose appetite for contest for political positions rewarded her handsomely in the past. During her tenure at the helm of the BDP Women’s Wing, she stewarded the party’s powerful organ by numbers, to the top. Due to her resilience and endurance in the political game, Tshireletso has become the epitome of success in elected political positions and her story is telling enough that politics rewards those who work hard and smarter.

She stands as an example that hard work pays even women politicians. Besides chairing the BDP Women’s Wing (2001-2006), the Mahalapye-born politician previously chaired one of the most powerful councils, the Central District Council (CDC) from 1994 to 2004 where she beat her male counterparts to the council’s powerful position.
