SELEBI-PHIKWE: In a constituency infested with mekoko (independent candidates), Kgauhelo Machete has confirmed he will be in the race for the Bobirwa parliamentary seat under the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) ticket.

Machete will challenge incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) Shaw Kgathi and Botswana Congress Party’s (BCP) Taolo Lucas who had been enjoying a two-horse race for a number of years in the constituency.  The Bobirwa constituency has three registered independent candidates and three more who are still to register for council positions.

Speaking during an interview Machete said:  “I confirm that I will be contesting the parliamentary race under the UDC ticket.  I’m compelled by the low economic status of the local communities.  I realised that the Bobirwa community is hungry for leadership that will bring a difference to their lives.”
