Bophirima ward was never allocated to BCP


The Botswana National Front (BNF) has noted misleading and malicious media and public statements from the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) central committee and its youth league.

The BNF has been implicated in the unfortunate statements and therefore would like to set the record straight as per below:

1). After the Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) was expelled from the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC), the members who had won primary elections and were to represent BMD in the 2019 general election; the incumbent Members of Parliament (MP) and councillors then, were all given a special dispensation to join and represent the UDC in the 2019 general elections and a deadline set. Mankie Sekete, who was to represent Bophirima ward, used this window and further joined the BNF. The other BMD members who took advantage of the dispensation included Molepolole South MP, Tlamelo Mmatli (BNF); Gaborone Bonnington North Diphetogo ward councillor Tshepo Moloko (BNF), Tiroeaone Ntsima, Francistown South (BCP) and Kabo Ketshogile (Lerala-Maunatlala - BNF). This is a fact and the BCP’s claims about Peter Mogapi being allocated Bophirima ward are totally untrue and misleading.
