BMD youth leader Dikgafela accuses PSP of double standards

Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) Youth League President, Armstrong Dikgafela, over the weekend spat fire at the Permanent Secretary to the President (PSP) Eric Molale over the warnings he made to Public Servants that they should desist from political activities or face be dismissal from their employment.

Dikgafela challenged Molale, saying that if he makes that decision then he should first expel the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) Director, Isaac Kgosi, Botswana Defense Force (BDF) Commander, Tebogo Masire, and BTV presenter Gloria Kgosi as they have always meddled in political issues.

“If then that is the case Molale should first fire Isaac Kgosi and Tebogo Masire who have since been involved in political matters as they at some point made political statements and, furthermore, he should also fire the Botswana Television presenter, Gloria Kgosi, who is always wearing Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) colours on national television,” he said.

Molale recently warned public servants that should they participate in any political event, they will face axing from government.

However, Dikgafela went on to add that the BDP government works on double standards saying that the party continues to betray the hopes of its electorates. He encouraged the youths to fully participate in elections and to make sure that they remove the ruling party from power as it is failing the country.

“Right now the current government has failed the plight of the youth, a clear example is that most of the youth who are even degree holders are wandering the streets unemployed, some of them are paid peanuts and some are already eyeing greener pastures beyond borders,” he said.

He went on to add that now the burden is on the youth as the leaders of tomorrow to shape the future of the country or Botswana will end in shambles under the rule of the BDP.
