BCP 7th Congress Report back from delegates to structures

BCP members divided over opposition cooperation
BCP members divided over opposition cooperation

Out of calculation that whoever it would be; our new president, our new secretary general and our new publicity secretary may misrepresent the decisions of the 7th Congress of Botswana Congress party.

BCP delegates unofficially convened several times in different groups days and sleepless nights on and between the 19th and 22nd to agree on what to do if the 7th congress is misrepresented by our leadership. This must not be viewed as indiscipline, but rather, as an alternative observation/opinion of majority of BCP delegates. It will be spread through any means of communication to give members and the nation a second opinion. We know it may be viewed as causing instability and deserving punishment, but that is not the intention of the concerned BCP 7th congress delegates.

We also calculate that this position may be de-campaigned and an action to crack the whip on those who share this view lobbied for by our newly elected leadership hiding behind the method by which this communication is spread. Therefore we decided to appoint one and only one person who will share this view through facebook and email, after which any person supporting our arguments must share this position as if he/she is that one and only appointed person. This we do as a way of insuring protection of anyone sharing our position as BCP members from victimisation by our leadership, which we have elected and mandated to represent us and never to misrepresent us.
