Let us remain focused on BDP ouster

The Botswana National Front (BNF) has noted with disappointment and regret an attack launched by one of the political elders in our society, Cde Michael Kitso Dingake on its leader and that of the Umbrella for Democratic Change, Cde Duma Boko.

 As we all know Dingake is a former President of the Botswana Congress Party (BCP), an off-shoot of the BNF.  He also happens to be a former Vice President of the BNF.  His attack on the BNF leader therefore is understandable as his departure and that of some of his colleagues from the BNF was not a very pleasant one.  It was acrimonious.  He attacked Cde Boko in an article which appeared in Mmegi recently. In response to his diatribe there has been a response from the BNF Youth League.

While we very much appreciate the anger that this article has caused, we would like to appeal to our members to not allow themselves to be derailed from the target, which is to channel all our energies towards unseating the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) from power. As the BNF and as part of the UDC collective, we should ignore this unwarranted provocation. Not because we cannot match Rre Dingake pound for pound in the mastery of hurling insults, but because we have a noble challenge ahead of us.
