The Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) will hold a congress in 2015 to determine its destiny, president of Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD), Gomolemo Motswaledi has said.

He told Mmegi that at the congress, the UDC partners BMD, Botswana National Front (BNF) and Botswana Peoples Party (BPP) will decide whether to merge and form one party or maintain the status quo. Motswaledi is UDC secretary general.  "What is important is the selling of the umbrella as it is. We have so far not done a good job in that respect. We should do it and do it very quickly so that people know not only who we are but also know what we are offering," he said.

He added that they should brand themselves quickly because of competition on the ground.  "We have the Botswana Democratic Party and the Botswana Congress Party existing as brands and we have the UDC existing as a probable brand. We don't want a probable brand. We want a real brand. At this time, people are still hearing that there is a congress for BMD, BNF and BPP.
