Riot act: The BCP says it will not tolerate wayward members

The Botswana Congress Party (BCP) has warned that action will be taken against members who do not observe campaign rules and regulations ahead of its elections in July.

BCP publicity secretary, Taolo Lucas has said such members are liable to sanctions as contained in the party’s disciplinary code. During the President’s Day holidays, the BCP will hold its elective congress at Seepapitso Senior Secondary School in Kanye. “Canvassing for support for internal party elections should be decent, civil and comradely. Party structures should not publicly endorse candidates but instead use internal structures to show support. Denigrating other party members through any media is not accepted,” warned Lucas.

He said party regulations embrace openness, transparency and dialogue between members but that should be done in a manner that shows respect and observance of established decorum within the organisation. “Party members who do not observe the rules and regulations of canvassing for support are liable to sanctions as contained in the party’s disciplinary code.”
