BCP's Ndlovu writes to BDP's new 'Big Fish' Manyapetsa, Osupile hits back


The former Botswana Congress Party (BCP) 2014 Campaign Manager Thapelo Ndlovu took to Facebook to write to his former Youth League President, Lotty Manyapetsa who joined the ruling BDP on Wednesday. Another defector Thato Osupile former BCPYL Secretary General responded with a venom letter to Ndlovu. Following are the letters in full text.

Yes you are a big catch Lotty Manyapetsa. Those who doubt you have a different (and awkward) understanding of politics. I am yet to meet or hear of anyone in your generation who measures up to your level of SIMPLE politics. Your detractors are generally armchair textbook theorists and the emerging insult blooded type.

Having said that I doubt you are an amphibian politician. Can you survive in both water and land? Fortunately you are giving us the opportunity to see that. My fear is this pressure alone is risky to your health cde. The environment you just left was conducive for your kind of politics but possibly not for a proper lifestyle while the one you are getting into is probably the other way round. But the little I know about you is you are a politician first. The change of lifestyle without change in politics will bore you in two years time, at most. Yes that’s me, fortune-telling (allow me to be a sangoma for a moment); unless they tie you to debts and other vulnerabilities, you will be back in opposition or wilderness before 2019. You see, that’s how far I think I know you, little as it is.
