UDC accused of destabilising BCP


The Botswana Congress Party (BCP) says there is an on-going brazen attempt by the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) to destabilise it by poaching its councillors.

This comes after the party lost some of its councillors to the UDC recently. The BCP, a coalition affiliate, fell out with its parent body last year over governance issues and has now made it clear that it will not contest next year’s General Election under the UDC.

Its decision to leave the UDC has left a majority of the party representatives in a dilemma especially councillors who have to decide between the two as election year nears. While councillors are continuing to resign, legislators have mostly made up their minds following the BCP quartet which was expelled by the party last year.
