MOSHUPA: Moshupa/Manyana constituents are concerned about the whereabouts of their area Member of Parliament (MP) and also Minister of Agricultural Development and Food Security, Karabo Gare.

He is said to have been missing in action for at least three months now. It is normally common that when the constituency has a by-election, its area MP normally holds meetings or gives guidance to party members on how the best campaign could be done. But when Mmegi team visited the area over the weekend, party members were still clueless on the way forward on the matter.

Instead, the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) Political Education Committee (PEC), met with party members to try to ask members to compromise if possible or follow the party proper procedure if primary elections were to be held. Already over 10 members have shown interest in contesting for the Moshupa East council by-election, which will be held on December 18, 2021. “This is worrisome because there is no communication from the MP’s office on what is happening with our MP.
