UDC NEC meeting highly-charged


PALAPYE: Botswana National Front (BNF) vice president Prince Dibeela over the weekend reportedly played a central role in ensuring that the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) is not expelled from the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) "for bringing the name of the coalition into disrepute".

The weekend meeting was no way near being cordial according to insiders.

At the meeting, the BCP was represented by its president Dumelang Saleshando, secretary-general (SG) Dr Goretetse Kekgonegile, treasurer Oral Mosedame and Tshimologo Dingake. The Botswana National Front (BNF) was represented by its president (and UDC president) Duma Boko, Dibeela, secretary-general as well UDC spokesperson Moeti Mohwasa and spokesperson Justin Hunyepa. The Botswana People’s Party (BPP) was led by its president Motlatsi Molapise. He was accompanied by BPP national chairperson Phillip Bulawa, treasurer Maxwell Habana, and secretary Nono Kgafela Mokoka.
